Not selling, that's the gent who sold it me :wink:


This 8900 is a 1990 model and the spec stem is made by American...nice welds. i think the 1991 was spec'd with the A-tac stem.


1990 was also the last year for 1" headtube.


Cranks are Matrix branded made by Cooks.


I took a look at your 8700...very nice. How is the build progressing? Pics?

If you ever think about selling the American stem and replace it with an Atac just drop me a pm. I'd love to use the Amercian for a current project.

Thx and cheers

Chris

hemm… things are loooooong ! :D
I need to respray the neon orange first, and it's the biggest work on it.
But, perhaps, I could have a 1991 8900 in the same size, with the RS1 fork. But news next week : I don't know the price :wink:
