Well, they weren't cheap........twas a firefight on eBay.de but as usual I had the biggest weapon :twisted: :twisted: :twisted: :twisted:

No secret.. just the small issue of making Picture 1 look like Picture 2 :

Got most of the parts already....desperately need a 30.4 Syncros pin though. Will also be going one step further than Picture 2.... :wink: :wink:

Be a great project that Neill, i see it requires some rather rare items :wink:

I remember em 1st time round...It does sometimes seem a little sureal seeing these bikes bounce back after 20ish years :roll:

I loved my moderish BLIZZARD...Still made out of steel and the geometry totally dialled :wink:

I nearly bought one first time round...back in 1992...then 'life' got in the way and the rest is history.

The Cirrus is how I found this site back in October....trouble is I ended up buying a Funk and a Cannondale before I found this :lol: :lol:

The Rocky will be quite easy I think, i've got 98% of the parts I need.... a 30.4 Syncros Pro Post is my Holy Grail on this :( :( :(
