I'm with you. I'm thinking of replacing the seat post, stem and handlebar for black parts. Probably Syncros or Easton parts. Any suggestions? What would be acceptable (as in 'period correct' ?) Stem now is a Azonic Shorty, pedals are Odyssey Black Widow's.


I have an "O2 bikers" issue at home with a review of a Sevysa from back in the day, I'll see if I can scan it for you one of the coming evenings. IIRC it was a polished frame with lots of blue Ringle parts.

Thx! That would be helpful. I've never seen reviews or brochures of/for complete bikes. This bike was also build from a frame to the first owner's taste. He had the bike for over 20 yrs.

From the July 1994 issue of O2 bikers. Hope you speak some French. FYI: 1 euro is 40 Belgian Franks, so this bike cost 4000 euro at the time!

There were many in the old BIKE 'Markt' books. Can't go wrong with Syncros, Grafton, Ringle and XT upwards.

I think the Sevysa frames were made by the Taiwanese Alfton company. Alfton also made the 1993 Wheeler 9900 and 9990 frames for example, with Easton Program Varilite main tubing. But that's just one brand. A lot of brands ordered their frames here.
