Hi
Are those the Titec 118 TI Bars? Getting all Misty eyed. Been looking for these & found some new in US...Stems seem rare as though...

Liking the Zoom Post, where did you buy that Mate?

I used to race Cannock Chase early 90's & a lad who I used to see on the circuit rode as a sponsored junior for Fat Chance through the Importers who I think were in Kidderminster (or that was where he lived?)

yeah, the titecs are great a couple of these this year, you can pick them up on here for around £40.

the zoom post was new old stock from e-bay last week, the guy still has lots left.......£4.00 with £4.00 postage.....bargain! get one while there still there.

still to do:

add the canti hanger

pauls half moons in blue to add
cut the steerer down
star nut to go in
brake pads to find and stick in

possibly lengthen the chain and stick my surly tensioner on.
