Nice original looking bike :xmas-cool: .

I've got a pair of like new Sachs New Success brake levers which I'd sell if you fancy a change/upgrade. I'd be inclined to keep it original though, depending on the condition of what's already on the bike.

Yes - very nice! I could tell you were keen from reading the sale post, glad you managed to work a deal :)

I would agree with everything mentioned by DynaCol, New Success would look great though and keep the Sachs theme going.

The Brake levers would be a good addition, there's also a couple of pairs of matching cantis and some Aris grip shifters on Ebay as well right now... :wink:

Thanks, I can’t find any Sachs on eBay just now! Don’t suppose you could add links.

Are these the grip shifters?

Wowser, fugly!

Was thinking about new Sram 7 speed grip shift, making the Isla bike connection full circle, but not sure if they would work.

Here you go!

One set of New Success cantis here: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Sachs-new-su ... Sw1xhZosfF

And some more here - I'm not sure what model they are but they are NOS and you can get a complete set: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Sachs-Vintag ... p5hC2oUQCg

The shifters are the same as I spotted, yes they're a bit 'overbuilt' on a second inspection! They might neaten up the controls a bit though? I think you could also use some of the 7 speed Wavey/Powergrip shifters, which should offer the same degree of cable pull. There's some here: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Sachs-Power- ... SwsYpaHbZ6

Nice Zinn, and one for riding too, excellent.

Sachs Wavey 7 speeds often turn up on ebay, I have some originals (bought new) on my 94 Zaskar and another set that I got more recently waiting to go on my Pioneer, when I eventually get it over to Argos for some new paint.

Bit of a tidy up and fettle last night and today. It’s low at the front but rides nicely

Have changed the bars as the were cut down an inch
