I've had my old Cinder Cone stashed in a friend's garage for the best part of 10 years, only ridden it off-road recently for the first time since about 2001 maybe. Last year I got some old Z1 Bomber's for £30 so I installed them and had the time of my life tearing down a mountain in Wales. So much so it's inspired me to sort the bike out properly and get it back to its best.
The issues I need to address are:
bottom jockey wheel missing
granny ring and bolts are missing
rear cassette is heavily worn
chain - ditto
all cables need replacing
new tyres (retro gum walls - suggestions please)
fork seals replacing
I've sorted the missing jockey wheels (fell off the back of the car coming back from wales), got a pair from my LBS.
The rest will be sorted in the order above. I'm hoping to call on the forum's collective wisdom to fill in the gaps (yawning chasms) that have developed in my maintenance/componentry knowledge over the past 15 years.
First up is the granny ring and bolts. I've sourced the chainring I need:
STRONGLIGHT 58 BCD Steel 20-24T :: £11.00 :: PARTS & ACCESSORIES :: Components - Gears - Chainrings - Stronglight :: Spa Cycles, Harrogate - The touring cyclists specialist.
Just needs some bolts now. Are all inner ring bolts made equal or am I looking at a long and arduous search of the entire internet to get a set that will fit the 5 bolt STX-RC crankset I've got? They're the model where the inner ring bolts on to the middle ring.
Was hoping these bolts would work:

If I'm mistaken I'd love to hear about it before I buy them!
