    Thanks Steve.

    The main thing we need are the wheels. I've been searching eBay for the other parts and will point them out here if people are interested in bidding on them.

    DC, if you have links to auctions for parts still needed I'd be willing to bet someone would be glad to help complete the build.

    Do you have a good pic of the hub/wheelset needed?

    Only 14 more at $20 each and we're there (or less if the seller is philanthropic)

    I'll throw $40 at it plus I'll be in Steamboat this weekend for pick up if this happens. Saves $40 shipping.
    Zip ties? Not on my bike!

    Want:
    650B rims or wheel set. 80's vintage 32 or 36 x 135mm

    DC,

    Does it look like you'll have that wheelset or should I get that front wheel above for $40 + free shipping?

    I was out riding all weekend and missed out on this thread's action. What happened with these wheels? the auction ended, did someone get them? I'm in Steamboat, and can get these down to Ft Collins if needed. Let me know if I can help.

    Sorry folks, I was headed back from Grand County after a week of riding when this ended.

    I'll throw another $20 into the pot, so that puts us at $120 for the wheels or about halfway to the asking price.

    sbsbiker, the wheels are still needed. Do you think the owner of the wheels would be willing to work with us on this, or at least be willing to cover shipping directly to the HOF? That would be the most efficient way of getting them there. Let me know if you would like for me to talk with him directly.

    I've messages with the owner about getting together, but haven't met up yet. I asked about price and got no answer except the he needs the money for his wife's non-profit fundraiser. If he holds firm at $250 can we get that much together. I count $160 so far, and will add $40 and cover the shipping, anyone else want to cover the last $50.

    If I find out his non-profit and it's tax deductible to contribute, maybe we could all just donate, and get the wheels from him.

    I just asked Joe Herget of the HOF to chime-in, as he had thought that some local Davis supporters might be willing to contribute to this project. Now is the time. I think we can get this done!

    In the mean time I've been keeping an eye on eBay for the Ti barends and the Dia Compe brakes.

    That's a win win for all the parties with eBay and PayPal being the loser. Great idea! Thanks for helping out.

    Hi All
    Thanks again for the ongoing commitment to the DeMattei project! I'm pinging everyone I know in Davis CA now to see if we can drum up the last $50.

    BTW, for anyone who needs it, ALL donations and contributions are tax deductible as the US Bicycling Hall of Fame is a 501c3 non-profit

    Just found this in my parts bins. Not much, but look at it and tell me if you can use it. If nothing else, maybe it will give you a specific target of something to search for, if you need one in better condition:

    I believe I bought these in '95. They were on my only bike for about 10 years, and they obviously set outside most of their life. They might look just fine if the new grips/shifters/levers were able to cover up the sun-bleach tattoos.

    They faintly say "Salsa Pro-Moto / Easton" on one side; have an old-style salsa logo on the other; and say "EA72 / Made in USA / 5 (degree) Bend" under the clamp. They were mounted in a Control Tech (quill) stem, ironically; and they had first-generation CNC avid levers and Suntour XC Pro shifters on them, to give you an idea of what needs to be covered up. They're 23" wide.

    Happy to send them on if you can use them, but no hurt feelings if you can't...

    Thank you for considering this. If I had to guess, the bar on her bike was probably labeled Avenir. However, I've yet to see something on eBay from Avenir that is grey. It is possible that it was something like this Salsa bar or a gun metal grey Scott bar. I don't know. Your bar would certainly do the trick if nothing else shows up.

    I've got a nice condition Scott AT-1LF, if that ends up being a useful sub. Uncut, full dachshund width. Bar color is a little bluer in person, but I don't know if it is dark enough to be 'gunmetal.'

    That bar looks good too. It's really hard to say what the original was. I suppose it could be a titanium bulge bar to go with the Ti barends, but the photos make it look fairly dark. Scott wasn't a team sponsor from what I can tell from that poster.

    That's great. The verbal commitments made for the wheels so far are,

    eastcoaststeve - $20
    jeff - $40
    classen - $20
    girlonbike - $20+
    DoubleCentury - $20
    CCMDoc - $40

    If I didn't forget anyone, that puts us at $160.

    Thanks Steve for bringing this back up. I had been meaning to post an update.

    Pretty much all parts that people committed to sending in have been received by the HOF. That includes the all-important CrossMax wheelset, which did make a couple of unnecessary trips back and forth. With these items, the rebuild of the bike is ready to begin.

    GOB, did you send in those alloy bolts? If not, I will provide a better shipping address for you so they won't get lost.

    There are some remaining parts left to be found, and at this point I've been watching eBay from time to time in hopes that they might appear. Here is the short list with pictures of some items,

    Headset: Dia Compe Kontak ST in silver
    Handlebar: Unknown alloy bulge bar, gray anodized
    Barends: Avenir cut and welded titanium
    Seatpost: Shimano XTR M900 in silver 27.0
    Bottom Bracket: Shimano UN-72 122.5 mm Shell?
    Chain: HG-91 or Dura Ace 8 speed
    Brakes: Dia Compe VC-700 front and rear
    Shifter grips: ATI for X-Ray in red
    Grips: Avenir thin with logos?
    Tires: Ritchey SpeedMax, black compound, 26 x 1.95 inch

    Barends with Avenir logo



    Kontak headset needed in silver



    Cantilever brakes needed



    The Ritchey Speedmax tread we need,

    Hi All,

    Thanks for posting the update (DC). I'll ask Robert to send us a few pics of the work in progress as reassembly moves forward. Joe

    Hey, DC. Sorry for the delay. They're sitting on my desk. Send me the address and I'll ship them out when I get home this week.

    Anybody else that can contribute for the wheels, etc.?

    Let's sticky this until it's done.

    Someone has just generously donated the proper chain for this project, so the remaining parts to find are,

    Headset: Dia Compe Kontak ST in silver
    Handlebar: Unknown alloy bulge bar, gray anodized
    Barends: Avenir cut and welded titanium
    Seatpost: Shimano XTR M900 in silver 27.0
    Bottom Bracket: Shimano UN-72 122.5 mm Shell?
    Brakes: Dia Compe VC-700 front and rear
    Shifter grips: ATI for X-Ray in red
    Grips: Avenir thin with logos?
    Tires: Ritchey SpeedMax, black compound, 26 x 1.95 inch

    Here is the proper seatpost on eBay. If someone wins this, they could exchange it for the black seatpost originally shown with the frame as it came from Susan and Dave.

    Cool news on the chain, and good find on the post DC.



    Let's be smart though....if you are going to bid....post your intent and your ebay name here so members aren't bidding against each other.

    I'm not sure this will help much since you can't see the names of people bidding on the same item as you.

    Maybe just post here that you're bidding on a particular item so others won't?

    ps. upon rereading your post maybe we're saying the same thing

    Yup, we're on the same page...

    I think even though Ebay blocks out the middle letters of a username, the first and last are visible...we should be able to see who's who to a point.

    As it happens, the proper Avenir titanium bar ends just got listed. I hope people can coordinate and not let these slip by.

    Cool, let's decide who's bidding and who's chipping in before it gets complicated....

    Why not contact the seller and ask for them as a donation? He has other bike parts for sale. this is not just an isolated sale. As an appreciator of VRC parts, he might want to participate in this project instead of getting cash, or negotiate an off eBay settlement.

    This could also cause them to become real expensive as the desire rating went way up.
    I'd pay what I got up now if he would like to pull the auction and still get a few bucks for them....just another option if you start talking.

    Tough call....do we let it ride and hope no one else is looking, or put another bid on top to make sure you get it?
    How about if you increase your max bid by $15 more (up to $30) and if you win at $15 all's good...if it goes for between $16 and $30 I'll PayPal you the difference?
    That way we're not bidding against each other, but we're more likely to get them for the build.

    Would really hate to see them slip away.

    I know of a couple of people that would be willing to contribute a bit more. These ones labeled Avenir seem to come up once a year at best.

    Nice work folks, making that happen on a pretty rare part. This is what is left,

    Headset: Dia Compe Kontak ST in silver
    Handlebar: Unknown alloy bulge bar, gray anodized
    Seatpost: Shimano XTR M900 in silver 27.0
    Bottom Bracket: Shimano UN-72 122.5 mm Shell?
    Brakes: Dia Compe VC-700 front and rear
    Shifter grips: ATI for X-Ray in red
    Grips: Avenir thin with logos?
    Tires: Ritchey SpeedMax, black compound, 26 x 1.95 inch

    I'd say the brakes are the most visible item left at this point. I've still not see a set come up on eBay yet.

    Since my $15 wasn't needed for the bar ends...I'd be glad to throw it in the pot towards the brakes if someone is bidding, or I'll bid if someone wants to pitch in.

    No reply from the seller on the brakes....

    Is anyone planning on bidding on them?

    If I don't hear from anyone, I'll give it a shot.

    I received confirmation from the HOF that everything people said they would be shipping has been received. Except those brakes, which I assume are on the way. Is that right EastCoastSteve?

    So here is where we are at with parts remaining to be found,

    Headset: Dia Compe Kontak ST in silver
    Handlebar: Unknown alloy bulge bar, gray anodized
    Seatpost: Shimano XTR M900 in silver 27.0
    Shifter grips: ATI for X-Ray in red
    Grips: Avenir thin with logos?
    Tires: Ritchey SpeedMax, black compound, 26 x 1.95 inch

    I suppose at this point we could go with either of the bars offered by iamkeith and yo-natey-yo since it is something of a guess what we are after at this point.

    LarryJo, you still have that black Kontak headset?

    Picture of parts we are still looking for,

    Yeah, slightly different tread and they are skinwall. It would appear that Susan's bike had blackwall tires. I think at this point any blackwall semi-slick would be good enough.

    DC, yeah, I fell asleep at the wheel on the brakes...they're still unopened in the box from the seller on my workbench.

    Jeff, I saw the link DC posted about the Grip Shift while I was at work, clicked the link, and figured what the heck...hit the buy it now button.

    I'll ship the brakes and grips together and save a couple dollars.

    Nice grab Steve!

    It's really hard to tell what the grips are, but the best photo we have is this,

    Obviously they are all-black and short or shortened for Grip Shift. There is a pattern to them that I don't recognize. My assumption was that it was an Avenir product, but I don't know what that would have looked like. The modern Avenir grips look wrong.

    If people think these would be a good-enough solution, I could provide these. I'm open to suggestions as we try and wrap this up and get the build going.

    DC when you've had 500 bikes through your basement shop you'll have a pair or two also. Can someone pm me the ship-to address and point of contact and I'll get them heading west.

    Also forgot to mention that I have red gripshift grips but they aren't ATI's. Has anyone contacted ATI directly, bet they would help.
