Hi guys.

Last friday i found this NOS beauty in a friend´s store. I believe this threaded model is from ´93 or ´94.

They were a bit expensive at the time, and it was one of my favorits.

Got it for free from that friend (here in Portugal people still don´t know the retrobike concept).

Sorry for the bad phone pics... :oops:

I know I still have one too. I wasn't so happy with it, but that could also very well have something to do with that I used a piece of wood and a hammer for installing :roll:

Herbold used them, so they are excellent for a Herbold replica build 8)

I like it in black. It is a Mongo headset, probably from 91/92, the first year they were made, i guess... :?
