I am watching this thread develop as I slowly build up my '85 CB Canyon.
Got most stuff I need but that original brake outer cable sounds tempting. :lol: Fancy selling me an old bikes worth?

Good luck with the build, maybe an mid 80's ride is on the cards soon :lol:

I'm thinking of putting it back together for Mr K's ride... it'll still be horrible red, but at least it'll be up and running again. It's only had 2 outings this year.

Still no sign of any Specialized Tri-Cross 1.5 tyres for it, but I've managed to find a pair for my lone Specialized Storm Control 1.8, which is close. Nice new set of Suntour XC Power levers, some NOS XC Ratchets and Rollercams to be fitted.

Found another pic: back in 1987 Castell Dinas Bran, nr. Llangollen after it's first respray...blackcurrant yoghurt with green cables, yellow plastic toeclips, aqua Vetta helmet, Rohan throughout, bumbag and a red pump...:shock:
