    Was it always like that? Green ano (particularly the early stuff) was very unstable - and turned blue

    Not saying it all as of course - i have lots of green anno parts which are fine.

    Noce to see all those cranks. I have a crank fetish - partic the magic motorcycles - works of art

    Those TWP's a really nice! hope to have a set some day. I think one or two other companies also made a magura replacement lever - maybe kooka? can't remember.

    -mtnwing

    Maguras were around for a while before Tomac had them. I have I believe the 1st set that was officialy imported in to the UK - from about 91 or so. They're still on my bike. Would like a set of those TWPs though. They weigh a ton.

    Hi Crell,

    Could you snap a picture of those old levers and post it? As I recall the levers were slightly different in shape in the first iteration. Haven't seen a pair in years. Mine got stolen along with my hardtail Raleigh a few years back.

    Might you be open to a trade if I can find you a set of light weight levers like Kooka's or TWP's? email me . . .

    Unusual Machine Tech brakes?

    I have one pair of Machine Tech brakes that I haven't seen anywhere else before. As you can see they look a bit different from the "ordinary" Zero Flexes and look even more elegant. Without the slot in the middle it's also easier to adjust the brake-shoe. Maybe they are an earlier/older model? Was just wondering whether anybody else has a pair of these brakes or has some information about them.

    The brake you have is the MachineTech ZeroFlex 2, which came out as I recall just before/ as Shimano's V-Brakes were coming out and which replaced the earlier ZeroFlex cantilever. They do look hot.

    That Ringle hub is as usual from Ringle before the sellout to Sun a work of art.

    I like that splatter anodized Kooka stem. Ringle had some splatter parts on display at a show I saw in an old "Mountain Bike" magazine, to bad they never released anything in splatter.

    Ringle did release some splatter parts though very rare I think and you basically had to call and request them direct from Ringle back in the day. I had a set of Ringle hubs in turquoise with ano purple splatters. I special ordered them from Ringle. Unfortunately they were on a bike I had that got stolen.

    I *need* some hi-rez images of Ringle splatter anodized parts!! :-)

    Seriously I had no idea you could special order them. To bad they never released anything official either.

    Damn,, turquoise hubs with purple splatter... is there a more perfect combination?!

    I'll have to dig and see if I can find an old picture of that bike. I've never seen another set other than the pair I had . . .

    Whole bike?

    Don't have a pic, and it's in Australia while I'm here in Japan.

    Bike that looks like the bike that Bob Kreyole (sp?) posted, that ancient one.

    Excpet mine is bigger, still has blue paint on it and it still rides.

    Nothing like an SS with back pedal brakes, and 28" rims. Don't ask about tubes, and tyres were an NOS item. Like 20 years old stock...

    Can probably take a pic of a bike that's even older in the near future, prolly 100 years old if it's a day. Looks seriously like a rigid SS that might have bene made 15 years ago at a quick glance.

    No cables, wide steel rims and other oddball stuff. I'll try to get a pic soon.

    Nice spread of parts you posted there!

    On a related note, Ive got a Kinetic Psykolz hub (well, wheel) that Id like to get rid of. I can send pics if anyone is interested. Superlight. I think it weighs 550 grams complete.

    I don't have any pic's up yet, but I have:

    Frame: Mid-90's Gary Fisher aluminum frame (1-1/4 headset) not sure the model, i bought it used.

    Hubs: Machine Tech front and rear (power claw-green anodized)- 5 years and no problems with the rear

    Rims: Mavic 222

    Levers: Machine Tech Zero-flex levers (red)

    Cranks: Race Face Turbine LP's with rings (red with black rings)

    Tires: Michelin Wild Gripper XC's

    Shocks: Rock Shox- Quadra 10's (i know they have no place on this bike but there are very few 1-1/4 parts in my area and they were cheap)

    Skewers: Rasta Colored Salsa (red, green, gold)

    It's hard enough to find all those parts most places, let alone on one bike.

    Hey Lebaron,
    Yep, pineapples are pretty cool. I don't have a rear, and I gave up looking for one, so I sold the front too in a selling spree. Ach!

    Tasshi, you have any extras?

    Pineapple hub

    If anyone is interested in the pineapple hub, I have many of them laying around. Every color. My father designed and machined them. The hubs were marketed under Clark-Kent for a while before he started Royal Bicycle Works which did not stick around for that long. Anyway, send me an email if you are interested.

    Good job! back from the past...

    just stumbled upon this thread -- seeing as how it is 3+ years old i thought maybe some of you collector-types might want to add to it w/ any recent acquisitions...

    i've certainly got nothing worthy to show, but it's fun to see all this cool stuff (at least those pics that are still online 3 years later anyway).

    man i wish i had been paying better attention "back in the day".

    Great thread...who cares how old it is.

    My rarest bit sits on my 1955 Peugeot Grande Tourisme...the rear d is a Simplex JUY 543 and if I need to replace it I found one here...

    http://derbyking.com/Detail/?n=125

    An NOS JUY 543 sold on ebay for 1382.00 back in 2001.

    And the bike was free and runs perfectly.

    Man this is one old thread!

    Now I have 7 tension disks and more rare parts.

    Amazing what 3+ years of collecting will do.

    I have quite a collection of XT thumb shifters.

    Actually I have a fair amount of Shimano and Suntour high end stuff from '89-'93.

    Also some Ringle, Nuke Proof, Answer and Cooks stuff from that period.

    Does a modern, rare, bike-related part count?
    Moots Ti pencil cup given to me by the Moots rep at Interbike about 5-6 years ago. We were just chatting about riding and found out we grew up in the same area of Colorado. At the end of the conversation I asked if they were selling the Ti cup. He said no and that it was just for show. He said seeing as it was the last day of Interbike he'd let me have it. Grinning from ear to ear, I pulled out my wallet but he just waved his hand and said "It's your's."

    Hey! It's not a box of Speedmasters, just a box of WTB, under the light dusting of rollercams are mainly spacers and brake pads

    Please do! I'm surprised it is only a 5 gallon bucket. I'd expect something the size of an oil barrel!

    DAMSIT!!!! Now I know why I can never find/buy WTB rollercams or anything with greaseguard for a decent price 'cause of y'all. SELFISH I say!!! While I'm at it, quit hogging all the cool rigid forks....It's criminal that I can't find a good price on an old Bontrager.

    I've posted this photo before elsewhere and while not as rare as most stuff on this thread, there are a few less-common items in this photo:

    1st generation Nuke Proof carbon hub
    1 1/8 threaded XTR M-900 headset
    Scott AT-2 LFx thermoplastic handlebar

    I'm not sure how rare it is but it's old and I just picked it up. It's going on a Bontrager single speed, I guess it should go on an old specialized but..eh..I don't care.

    A recent score....I saw a box... it was offered....all FREE

    I just picked this up the other day. I know they're all roller cams, and various associated parts. Looks like a couple generations of Suntour versions, but then there are also a couple of sets with no designations on them at all.

    Any clues? I also notice that one of the cams has a different profile than the others. Anyone know what this is about?

    BTW - I have ~100 sets of the brass rollers if anyone needs some... all NOS and NIB.

    The cam profiles should be similar - but some are probably wider cams than others. Sometimes a frame needed a wide cam because of wider spaced bosses. The *bump* on the cams is positioned so that the brake pads move to the rim quickly with minimal lever pull and then as you apply more lever pressure, the pressure to the rim increases at a greater rate. If you have cams that are sans *bump*, they are junk and pretty useless.

    BTW, those rollers also are useful as rollers for old Bontrager or Yeti frames (or anything else with similar routing) that have top pull cable routing that require a roller to actuate a bottom pull derailleur).

    Nice find.

    Those caramba's were a bit to stiff along the length for the amount of metal around the spindle,especially since it was a tapering square spindle, that trys to split the crankarm as you tighten it,

    Nuke Proof Twist Tight Skewers

    Back in the early 1990s, I purchased a set of these lovely Nuke Proof Twist Tight skewers for my custom Bridgestone MB-2. They then made their way to my Rhygin, and then disappeared (as did my CCM Tacks, a Shoei full face helmet for autocross and my high school band jacket). Since their disappearance, I have searched for a set to replace them without much luck (okay, I wasn't trying all that hard). Until now. I placed a Wanted ad over on RetroBike and got a response the very same day. I don't have these in my grubby little paws yet as they will be sent from Norway on Monday. They'll be going on my Rhygin, I think.

    Anyway, I've never, ever seen another set of these on any bike.

    That's too bad. I had zero issues with the set I had and they kept both wheels snugly in place. I'm hoping this set does the same.

    Lots of old parts....two sets of Sweetwing cranks 1995, one set of Cook Bros E-cranks 1996, the jumping pic is of a 1994 Specialized steel and alloy FSR and Lawill leader fork and was shot in 1996, there are probably more but I'm not looking at the photos right now so forgive me. Oh yeah, in the garage shot hanging right by the door is my first Mountain bike, a 1992 Raleigh Chill that I just got back after 17 years, COOL!

    Great thread...and not just because I started it years ago.

    Early drop bar shifter mounts (and Potts LD stem)


    Slightly newer WTB shifter mounts:


    Grafton middle finger.


    Fillet brazed Ross Shafer fork, WTB roller cams, earlier WTB brace.


    Modified shifters mounted to Magura levers.


    Early roller cam.

    Nice mods on that Potts.

    I've been meaning to take some XC rc's and custom shape (lighten) them and then give them the mirror finish polish job.

    ah, I know whatcha mean. I do think the typical Potts style scallop is a bit nicer looking than the one on my Cunningham.

    How's this for rare?

    A 24k Gold plated XTR gruppo?

    I found this on my local craiglist. Story was it came off a show bike at Interbike in Vegas back in '93 or '94. The woman who sold it to me said her firend won a bike raffle and they ended up stripping off these parts and she'd been carrying them around since. Never used beyond mounting to the show bike!

    Everything except the derailleurs and shifters, which were probably difficult to plate considering they probably couldn't be disassembled practically.

    Also included a brand new Mavic wheelset with gold-plated spokes and nipples!

    Alas, I fleabay'd them to a collector in San Diego:

    How about

    I have these Topline cranks, Boone rings on my Bonty Race Lite. I think that they are fairly rare, no? Don't ride them much anymore, my kid has been using the bike more than me.

    Too many bikes, and just enough time to ride them.

    retro parts

    I have an Interloc TL3 fork, from 1997, very expensive and rare.
    Also, a variety of cranks I've owned. The purple one in the front is a Speed Tec Earthquake from Germany.

    Its funny you had a thomson stem there... they're apparently vintage (the 25.4 bar clamp ones anyway) now as a local shop had two new ones in their $5 stem bin last week (where I found and subsequently bought them).

    Nice find! The seatposts count as under the "cutoff" at '95, but the stems are in the new century --they came out in 2000 methinks.
