It does. I'd recently seem pictures of yours, so when scrolling ads after work, the colour jumped out and i was on my way to pick it up.

I'll post it up tomorrow.


I think I’ve got a spare pair of original Claud grips in the spares box if you’re interested in going catalogue correct.

I think the ones on it are original? - quite solid black with a not quite round profile? The ends have been taken off for the bar-ends though.

Cool, sounds like you’ve got the originals already (photo below) these were around from 1989 to 1992.
It wasn’t until 1993 that they sprouted horns.

It’s possible that a few were made near the end of 1991, as they were only ever advertised in the 1992 Catalogue which would have been printed in November 91.

Check the date codes on the Shimano kit.

I see the Elite bottle cage is original - I'll pop it back on.
