I think you have already done a great job :D you are looking for even older bits which makes it that much harder.
Carry on looking for what you want, it will turn up and enjoy the hunt

Sort of miss the search to be honest, so make the most of it, will be keeping my eyes open now for a 1" Quill Stem :lol:

[quote="Benandemu"] Pre 1991 - Black rims
Post 1992 - Silver rims

It's not really a motto, but i will remember it like one :wink:
There's another thing I remember made me decide first for silver rim, hubs and silver crankset: the 91 marin catalogue where you can see nearly the same team issue frame than mine (the same colors) and I remember to have thought it looked really retro...But I suppose what you say is true, so historically I was wrong... :(
But i don't know if I've changed my mind...Black rims with silver hubs?

Huntso thank you for your help and encouragement!

Hi Guillaume,

Bike is looking really great.

Rims are a nice find too.

There are a lot of 110 46t and 48t chainrings on ebay UK.

Hope that Super Turbo saddle proves to be comfortable


:wink:

Chaser.
