    This thread hasn't seen any action in a while and I don't think I've ever posted these before, so without further ado...

    Got this stem from a fellow VRC member. I don't think we ever decided who made it, maybe a Precision prototype?



    This isn't exactly a "part", but still rare being 1 of 1. This is the artist's proof of the silk screen art for a Mantis t-shirt. See if you can translate the story it's depicting.



    WTB Specialized Team Issue saddle in Umma Gumma and perforated, not too many of these around.




    and I'll close with this pile of crap (not mine unfortunately):

    I've seen a Sugino 846 stem that looked at least similar (don't recall if it had the curve to it) at a local shop. Very rare apparently.

    This is the only thing "846" I could pull up with an image search:

    That might be a Kooka. I have one that looks very much like yours. Since about '94 I've been missing the little wedge that clamped it onto the steerer tube and it's been sitting in a box ever since.

    Many probably already saw these on flea bay, but I thought I'd post them here for posterity. You don't see these every day… and apparently they "turn a mtn bike into a road bike"

    Custom WTB Titanium Handlebar

    These WTB titanium handlebars were one of three custom ordered with a whooping 26" width, seven degree bends, 1/16" wall thickness, with a weight of 320 grams. This has Halaburt-spec all over it.

    Can anyone figure out what they were intended for?

    Here are a few things you don't see every day. The top pull bolt-on xt derailleurs were especially hard to find.

    The Adventure Components crankset is not a common item either. Rings are 19/29/46. The 19t granny ring is a
    one-off prototype.

    The last picture is a set of IRD 5-10 Cantilever Brakes. Haven't seen another set anywhere, ever.

    That answers a question for me...I have one of those modified to fit on a clamp for a Manitou...always wondered about it.

    I've been on a purple binge lately. Wish I hadn't let these IRD Widget Brakes go. The Moots Titanium Stem was a lucky find for the $35 I paid!

    Nice! A buddy of mine gave me a set of those, sans instructions. I haven't put 'em on a bike yet. Any chance you could post the instruction sheet?
    Thanks!

    Cunningham Fixed Angle Post

    Now, this is 1 of a kind. Got this from Charlie. He made this in the 80's and used it as a template for all his Fixed Angle seat post. It's marked MASTER down the side. One of the coolest parts I own for sure.

    Phil BB can "for Mountain Cycles"

    The first gen Phil bottom brackets are certainly not very rare, but there might not be too many of these cans still around for the 130mm spindle length.

    Kinda curious why it is labeled "for Mountain Cycles" instead of "for Mountain Bikes" ... maybe so no one would get confused and think this BB was appropriate for an early 80s Ritchey MountainBike (which had press-in BB) ... or maybe just out of deference to the MountainBikes brand.

    A friend turned me on to this. Thought I'd find it interesting. I do. No idea if this ever was marketed as I have never seen one in the wild or otherwise. Just thought I'd share and see if anyone knows anything about it.

    I always thought those syncros alum. cranks looked very much like m737 shimano. That's not a bad thing since the originals look good and work really well.

    Do bmx parts count? I've got some PMC cranks on my old GT, no bearings required, just has a sleeve and orings to hold the oil film inside! I've never seen any others when I used to race or for sale since then.

    Could very well be. You can't see the quill part because it's covered by a shim that takes it from a 1" to 1-1/8". A hybrid would make more sense, certainly by today's standards anyway.

    This is another stem from the same source. Looks more like a MTB or possibly road design.

    The picture was taken in macro mode, which probably distorts the view. The derailleur shifts well.
    The older Ti dropouts (this is 1991) are quite sturdy but I also installed a lightweight aluminium derailleur bolt to have an predetermined breaking point.

    Yes, the extreme performance products (literally) punisher and although it is not exactly rewarding to post pictures of singlespeed conversions on this board :



    For rarity, please notice the extensions on the brakearms of the decelerators in front; these should be rather unique.

    Those look like Marin brakes. Took apart a pair of those to cannibalize parts on another set of brakes that combined Avid, Paul and Marin parts. Here's a pic. The arms were machined out of an old crank arm.

    One possibility, apart from Marin brakes, are SRP "The Brake". If they have titanium hardware, then they might be SRP.

    ECS, think Roger Durham. That weld on the side doesn't remind you of something with BMX roots?

    Steve
    ROGER'S - Bikes - RMS Metalwork

    He did and still does motorcycle stuff, from BMW to Harley Davidson, production and custom, for racing, traveling, oldtimer spare parts, and so on.
    And in the 90s he did make custom mtb frames and stems. The bike stuff on his page does not look that vintage. He used to make cool aluminium mtb hardtail frames and different types of stems, both quite rare. I never saw one in reality, only on pictures. So when i saw this stem i had to have it.

    Sure looks like a Bullseye crank, but then again it is aluminum.

    My bad.

    How about the R&D department's prototype of the Judy DH, which has sand cast lowers (larger diameter than production model) and was tested and raced on by The Missile?

    Some other odds and ends, I think the GT pro series pedals are pretty rare and the true Elf bars too. The ProForx are funny I guess the sponsored Pros back in the day used to make them rigid because they were so inefficient.

    Well, it was 1979.

    Incidentally, the guy he is pictured with was of some significance to Bay Are cycling history. The bike behind Tom is a Jack Taylor Roughstuff with 650B wheels, and I can only guess that they were talking about how superior those wheels were to 26".
