Just in case it helps you always keep any eye out for a Reynolds 501 handlebar, and whilst not Baja tyres, these are the correct colour if you got stuck.

thanks for the above, I think keeping it euro is the way forward. missed these ones but the vertical pro looks like a contender. I'm hoping that I can put my hands on some conti supercross',

Although I may not follow the Sach route on this (just now....) Id like to keep euro, catalogue esq. well see how that works out..... :?

the colour match is spot on so I think it was worth it getting them matched up, certainly better than the planned flexstem before the original stem was located. Theres a few minor spots to be touched up on the frame,

What the best way to prep the surface before painting? any ideas? all advice welcome

Great stuff. Well done on finding a stem and the colour matching looks great.

Wasn't the Success called a Success because it came with the Sachs New Success components?

Word of advice on the decals. I drew and supplied the artwork to Gil for the decals but they were for my Centaur. I think, looking at the individual models, they were all slightly different. You might want to darken the grey dots on the artwork I supplied to Gil so it matches your frame...

Can't wait to see it back on the trails!

thanks for the heads up on the decals. the components on this I believe were Sachs new success. checking over the past few months some parts are available and do crop up but a couple are more challenging to source. Until I can locate a couple of the more difficult options Im going with some parts I already have and some that I have come by recently. My thoughts are keeping this Euro spec and going with a campy build. but.... for a bit of a change I was looking at using the centaur/Euclid graphite items as I think they may work well with the jade green.

Taken from sinnermans thread the 1991/1992 range with the success:

interestingly the green zinn from the 1990 catalogue seems to have campy componets
