This is the suntour section from the freewheel 1990 catalogue, have only scanned the MTB stuff so far but if I get some requests I can do the roadie stuff too for you.

oh , and its all priced so you can see how much you are being ripped off these days just because it says Retro in the description :lol: .

here goes :wink: :arrow:

Suntour was really the only real competition for Shimano back in the early 90's, amasing how they're now no where to be seen..

Loved the greaseguard kit they brought out and the MD kit in 1992-3...

Interesting to see the Beast kit on here...never heard of that before...

Cheers for the great scans

I never actually bought into the microdrive kit, thought it always looked too 'teny weeny cute' compared to this stuff .

always loved the XCD stuff and that got knocked off the production list as soon as MD was brought in :(
