Jeeeeez £120 for those mavic wishbones :shock: . That is STRONG. Who said the arse was falling out the retro market.

Would've snapped up those ringle for £7. Only saw the auction when it had finished.

My pet project at the mo is this little baby, Alu E-stay, some rare early alpinestars forks (a weird threaded/ahead affair,was told off ti-mega), onza cantis, x-lite post with bonty saddle, M651 front mech, SS5 mkII levers, an original king 1-1/4 aheadset, Atac stem, answer bars and a load of red bits.
STOP PRESS just got some nice hope tit hubs NOS which I can build my sunCR17 red anno rims on :D
taking my time with her using some nice old bits , should look cool when finished.
I do have a good idea of what the frame is but I'll let you guys have a guess for a while :wink:

E-stays...mmmm......nice!

I don't think it's a Funk, Alpinestars or Bigfoot. Struggling to remember other builders who did alu e-stay bikes.

OK. I'm starting to guess now

Mantis / Nishiki (think they did a 'regular' e-stay bike)?
Fisher?
Brave (steel only I thought)?
Titan?
