should be a 90 or 92, as 91 had cable stops on the headtube as opposed to the top tube. the seatpost COULD be an original Syncros that has been stripped and re-ano blue.

got a serial number to share? should be stamped on the rear drop-out.

that could be a great guess on the seatpost,the seller mentioned getting it ano'd but i wasn't really paying attention - i was too busy gawping at the bike :lol: .well that saves me the hassle of tracking one down,off to the powdercoaters with it.

serial number is 3787 stamped on rear drop out.

i have some decals coming from gil_m and included is a yellow 'sandvik' triangle decal,were these on the bikes as the very few pictures i've seen don't seem to show this? :?

many thanks

here's my 91:

http://www.retrobike.co.uk/forum/viewto ... &start=100

don't believe there's a tubing decal on it, or on the 92 damaged frame i have. i think the sandvik decals were only on the later ti-bolt frames.

i've swapped out the std Rev cranks to compact set and need to fix the loose bar-ends by maybe shimming them.

From a distance the post was a USE, but up close it does look like the ~1991 post,can you get a picture of the very top clamp. Yes he anodised a lot of parts.
powder coat would give the wrong finish, a not quite perfect concise was standard i think. Might be holes at the bottom and size should be on it unless cut down.

righto,here's the 'mystery post'.doesn't look cut but no writing anywhere,it does have a sort of 'milling' pattern but only on one side
looking at the syncros stem and bar i would have thought that powder coat would be the correct finish or was the post more satin finish?

i was also given this owner's manual for the manitou forks,would it be of interest to anyone in the catalogue section?the only problem i have is that i don't have access to a scanner :oops:

Image
Image

is there any way i can date the bike from the 3787 serial number?

thanks again,mick

that really is very nice 8)
are the bar ends syncros?
i really would like a syncros chainset but they will have to wait for now,i've been offered one by another member - hopefully he will still have it when i eventually get the funds together.

cheers,mick

they're shimano slr but i've no idea about the adjusters,hopefully someone will be along who knows all about them
they're a very good idea and they work incredibly well so i thought they would be a bit more common/well known
