    Salsa MotoAce 17 degree 660mm 25.4mm bars vgc

    Salsa MotoAce bars - 660mm 17 degree black 25.4mm clamp. Now I’ll admit these might not be pre 97 but I thought they were available back then and that’s certainly why I bought them in the first place. I searched for years for them and they cost me a fortune in NOS condition. Now it appears I...

    Stripping alloy frame - latest ways?

    Hi All - long time no see/post....... What's the current best way to strip and polish an alloy frame? I know Nitromors was once the best way but now the special ingredient has been removed it isn't as good. I don't want to spend too much cash as it isn't a valuable bike but want it to look...

    1992 GT Tequesta

    I’ve just put one up for sale in the sales section. I’m asking £120 (offers ok!), is this the right ballpark? I’ve been out of the Retrobike game for a while so was unsure.
