Had this one quite a while, and really ought to get around to starting it. Just need a few parts to be able to feel comfortable with then choosing colours for paint.

I could do with an Mag 21 1 1/8 crown and steerer if anyone can help, the one i have is too short....?

Also would like a Salsa stem 130/5 mm length 1 1/8 if anybody has anything, condition not important and i dont need a roller....?

Not really much of a story too tell.. :oops: You know me, a sucker for fillets, this one came up and i said yes, been slowly acumulating bits and bobs over the past 2 or so years, and once i have the couple of bits im missing, i can make a start.

Its held up, hung up, pretty well, just a light level of surface to rub down prior to paint and we will be good to go.

Still trying to decide on Colours, ill leave you to guess the tubing and the brand, as it might be a long thread..., we have plenty of time to guess.

The only clue im going to give, is that i have been here for nearly 10 years and i havent seen one in flesh or on a thread.

Hmmm... some Max OR, maybe a Prestige seat tube?
Seat stay junction doesn’t look like a Roberts, maybe more Yates if anything.
1&1/8 headtubes took a while to emerge from some of the traditional UK builders.
Cable guides for V or Magura?
