so MADB are you reading that as making yours no 599 , made in Aug from the 8, year as 1984 from the 4, with Dec 83 canti's on and a march 84 crank? I suppose another option is June 84, from the letter code "F"?
Suntour code would be Z = 83 and A 84 iirc.

I haven't a clue at the moment, the rims on the wheels I should be getting are well used, so much so I would not use them. So I would be happy to get a display set of anything that looks like its from the 80's. A set of muddy fox tires would be great but I'm not going to hold out for a set.

Wow, they're nice. :D Do you have a bench buffer set up, or do you just have supple wrists?

This is the part of the build like most and the part I like to get out the way also....... :?

Clean with Engine degreaser (as that all I have) then a bit of Autosal (or the cheep stuff from ASDA its just as good) on green scotch pads, scrub like hell and then buff up with an old T shirt, have a cup a tea and admire your work. :D
