Great seeing early Proflex's :) , would'nt mind seeing a pic of the 752, that was my first proper MTB, bought new from Shockwave in Glasgow, the frame was later replaced under warranty by an 852.

BTW i thought i was fine to hammer headsets in with a block of wood until i cracked a (alloy) headtube :( a headset press is recommended.

Bitd I used to run skateboard bumpers called "clouds" in my flexstem not sure if they're still available though? (And my stem had steel quill section too).
