    Let's see those rare parts!

    We've got a nice well rounded bunch of 'official' threads with some amazing vintage. But, a fine rig is only as good as it's parts...so, what rare and unique part are you hiding in your closet?

    I'm a Tension Disc freak. I know they don't work all that well, but I love em' anyway.
    I'm at four so far...here are two that are built:

    The other two are new, unbuilt and in the factory box with wheel bag. (and no, I'm not selling!)

    And two pairs of Tioga Revolver cranks. Both new and unused, the blue pair are supposedly 'team issue' only...



    A couple pairs of Cook Bros cranks, a 1" RS-1, two 1" Judys, and a fine 1" SID. Any vintage mtb collector know's how important a 1" steered fork is!

    Yep, I usually have a dozen or so ads running in the classifieds but I haven't listed any this month since I'm hoping Gregg will respond to my PM about adding a vintage section (which most of the stuff I usually list on mtbr qualifies as anyways) to the classifieds. Otherwise if I hear nothing from him, I'll stick 'em in the usual missmash of sections later in the week.

    In the meantime, my email's [email protected]

    And Djuc, yes I'm selling the machine tech levers.

    Hi,

    those Neon ODI Grips. Does anyone have a source for them? I hope that I'll finally able to finally build an 1988/1989 Yeti Racing Replica and I need them for this bike (neon pink on the left and neon green on the right).

    Best Regards,

    Michael

    LOL! I'm still using a AT-3 on my commuter bike. Works well actually as I have a road section on my commute that is exposed to the wind off the ocean.

    Post that bar/stem pic on the DeKerf thread on the Cdn bikes board. I think someone was talking about one a while ago. I'm sure they would love to see it.

    There it is again! I'm a Machine Tech fan too, and this is the second time i've ever even heard of the legend of their crank. The first fellow to mention it worked for titec, and he looked long and hard for a photo of one, but could find nothing. Andrea, do you have any pictures? Anyone?

    I was a machinetech dealer from the company's debut till their demise and there never was a crank listed in the catalogs. Now they might have prototyped something and had its pic taken for a magazine, but after the rear hub defects and having to come up with v-brake and levers at the same time, they wouldn't have had the resources to do a crank for production runs and none made it to the canadian distributor that's for sure.

    Hmm. I've heard about 90% good reports about the rear hubs, and the other 10% were anything but flattering. I have a set that have clearly been ridden very hard for nearly a decade, and are rock solid, with some pretty worn parts.

    I recall at around the same time, at a certain large bike MFG I worked for, we figured if we only got 20% of our product back through warranty we were doing pretty well. I think we were usually up around 25% most of the time though. There are two ways of looking at this. One is, every company is going to get broken or defective product back, and while less is obviously better for everyone, in something so chaotic as putting a person on a bicycle and sending them into the world, it has to be expected, anticipated, and planned for. What becomes an issue is how much anyone wants to put up with it. The counterpoint is, when you're paying twice as much for a pair of hubs as a pair of say, xtr's, you'd expect twice the innovation, sure, but also twice the precision and quality control as xtr.
    A lot of those little guys were prototype machining shops, and not really experienced in mass producing anything either. As crummy as some of the reputations got, it may have stemmed from people comparing a small company in its infancy to an 80 year old institution.

    Of course, I'm a hopeless romantic, or an idealistic hippy (depending on who you ask), so I love the worst squealing set of grafton brakes better than anything shimano ever did. Sometimes it's about more than the end result.

    I for one have NEVER heard of the Crank, as far as I know they only made Brakes, Levers (both canti and V) hubs, and a couple of different stems - have I missed anything?

    most people I know hate their stuff, I love it, it is one of the things I would collect without putting any on a bike...

    found the issue, and that reminds me...

    <img src="https://yoda.densan.ca/kmr/bikes/joes.jpg">

    My Joe's rear derailleur, which I'm practically hoarding as the spots I list it for sale, I've got the price set rather high.

    propos machine tech: i used the cantilever brakes, i picked up a blue one for forty bones just as v-brakes were coming out. they worked pretty well, and looked the part, too. i still have the brake sitting in my basement. the thing was, the pivots didn't seem to hold up long, mine are reasonably wobbly. argh.
    i would kill to have a set of the zeroflex 2 cantis, which were even coller-looking than the originals.

    Of all the luck. Those look an awful lot like a certain pair of cranks I'm working on at the moment. Anyone know how I might get in touch with any of the Machine Tech guys? I need to have a chat before going any further on these, or they'd have a pretty good case in court...

    Machinetech went bust several years ago, and didn't hold any patents either that I can recall.

    not particularly, the 30 hole ones are but only because its an unusual model w/high-low flanges, 20 on drive side, 10 non drive side, sunrims made the matching rims, and Dave's Wheels used to sell 'em as recently as a year or so ago. The advantage? less weight than a 32 spoke wheel, with 10 pulling spokes on the all important drive flange (the one carrying most of the torque) which is more than on a 36H hub, laced 2X as I recall drive side and radial non-drive.

    Yep, but it'd take all of about five seconds for someone to come out of the woodwork, papers in hand, once my cranks hit print. I'm not going to risk anything on this, cause I've been on the other end of one of these deals, & it's never good for anyone in the end.

    Dave's Wheels are where I got mine about ~12 years, after reading an article in MBA about a Ti GT Ziazhang (sp) they built up with light parts.

    Wheels I have are:
    32 hole, 3 cross drive, radial non-drive rear
    28 hole radial front
    Rims are Sun CR-17 (Chinook) think?

    I'm still using the front wheel on the commuter. The rear hub needs a new bearing, but you have to de-lace on side of the wheel to change it, so I haven't got around to it.

    There's a stratum on ebay right now but its seller is one of the guys who doesn't combine shipping and charges $15US for everything.

    For some reason I'm thinking either Ulterrain's second hub design, or Union USA. They're not Pulstar's thats for sure.

    I was a westpine dealer and never bothered to get one of their hubs for myself. They weren't particularly light and they came out at a time when I was looking for seriously light hubs.

    That is a Pineapple hub made by Clark-Kent, we have 3 of them. I laced one up using a full radial lacing and just got the picture of one using a twisted lacing. Might try that one next!

    Now I remember, the double pull and side flanges were designed specifically for twist lacing.

    Hmmm... man didn't realize my stuff was rare or retro...



    Will have to get some pics up in the near future.

    List includes...

    Nuke Proof Carbon Hubs (Atom Bombs) with Ti Spokes and Bonti Rims. (Look for this on Ebay soon.)
    Nuke Proof Superflys with Spline Drive. (In use on the hardtail.)
    Amp F-4 Carbon. (In use on the hardtail)
    Machine Tech Front Hub (I've already had offers on this one... freaky) (In use on wife's bike)
    Vetta Tri Shock Tublar Ti Saddle (and other Vetta saddles) (In use on dually and one in storage)
    First Generation XTR pods. Magura Clamps. (In use on hardtail)
    Second Generation XTR pods with precision Billet Clamps. (Storage)
    Different Intergrated Bars/Ends - Generic Bahrma's, GT, Scott. (Two in use, two in storage)
    Avid Tri-Align III's. (One in use on hardtail, One set in box - hehehe)
    Hershey Longneck V's. (In use on wife's bike, another brake in storage)

    Might be a few more hiding in the bottom of the box, but that's the crux of 'em.

    Will have to get some pics up soon.

    Pineapple hubs... mmmm.... got a mini review from a British MTB mag, MTB PRO May '95 it says:

    "PINEAPPLE HUBS: I saw these first at Annaheim 1994 show and thought they looked incredible. Now, CAD are bringing in these fruity beauties. The idea is that yo can build a really strong triangulated, snowflake wheel. Your wheelbuilder will hate you though. "

    RRP in the UK was: 120 front, 160 rear....

    so there we go....

    Ahhh, Magic Motorcycle....

    Actually those are Magic Motorcycle pre Cannondale purchase. And while they are cool as hell there's no point to riding them as chainrings are impossible to find.

    What I'd love to see/have is a pair of the Magic Motorcycle wheels!!

    Well they were kinda like the original Spinergy wheels except instead of carbon blades they were aluminum. Custom machined hubs and rims and used an ultra-compact custom cassette...I know the small cog was 9T and I think the largest was 18T.

    Circa 1992??

    Machine Tech Stem

    Here's my bike. I guess the rare parts are the frame, bar and fork. It's a Schwinn Project Underground with a Look Fournales fork and a Klein Stratum 90 bar.

    My other rare parts include a Joe's similar to the attached pic, and an all black one like the black and blue one posted by DeeEight.

    I've been looking for a Machine Tech stem like this for some time now... the other stems they made are kind of ugly.

    I had these on an old Fisher SuperCaliber. Neon Yellow with a black top tube and a yellow zig-zag running down each side.

    Skullcrack. That is crazy as well, I don't know what.

    The fisher SuperCaliber in Yellow with the zigzag was my first real bike, after years of beating the tar out of an 87 trek 800 frame & piles of similarly junk componentry. I remember picking it up, seeing the teal/chrome CR-7 (mantis xcr copy) next to it, & thinking the full aluminum was a substantial upgrade. There was a $200 RS-1 upgrade available, but I bought it rigid and put an order in for the new Mag 20's instead. They finally came in, and it was about 6 more months before I saw another suspension fork out there. Everyone saying "how stupid..."

    Check this out. Go to ebay right now, and type in Critical Racing...

    And now I ride Mantis frames...

    Cool, it would be an Amp Research F3 carbon I believe. I am riding an aluminum legged version on a Rock Lobbster single speed at the moment. Good fork. It worked out great for me as a slight compromise between suspension and rigid.

    Great use of the gun rack by the way.

    Downhillers here to represent . . .

    Shimano Airlines DH Shifting System . . . . because there aren't air bottles big enough for a 25 mile xc ride!

    Can't fault Shimano for lack of creativity . . . they bravely went where no component maker had gone before on this one . . . and probably never will again!

    XC guys are not to be out done on trick retro-shifting . . .

    Ever seen a set of these before? The shifter is an old Sachs twist shifter, but attached to these are the real beauty's:

    "SAFE Products" manufactured Hydraulic Shifter Cables

    Turn any shifter line into a hydraulic shift line. All that is needed is a short short run of cable on the shifter and derailer at each end which connects to the hydraulic cylinders. Very trick! When they weren't leaking fluid, they ran great, especially in the mud. They felt ultra smooth when working properly. At 200 bucks a line in the early 90's they were definately pricey way to click a derailer!

    If so I'd be interested.

    I picked up 2 of them for $100 when they were discontinued; one broke and I got rid of the other when I changed frames. But they were great forks.

    hehe.. SAFE rules. I still have the MBA issue where they review 'em.

    Don't know how rare they are, but I have a set of the Syncros forged aluminum cranks. I'll just post a pic of my XC bike.. 1997 IF Deluxe, first year they went to 853. The aforementioned cranks, a Nuke Proof bombshell front hub, Avid Arch Supremes, white bro's Ti bar.. what I think is a pretty rare selle san marco seat.. I also have a Girvin Cross-Link Elite, one of the good ones with the Noleen coil-over. That's about it, I think. Oh yeah, also have one of the original Syncros hinged stems, but the hinge on the face is busted..

    TWP Levers

    These are a set of my TWP levers for Magura rim brakes.
    You can also see a Precision Billet clamp that you could use on the original XTR shifters. The original XTR shifter/ brake combo was screwed together. If you went to another brake lever (like Magura's) you could still use you shifters. Of couse Shimano pop-riveted them together ofter that so they could not be separated.

    Very cool levers LQQk!

    Always wanted to own a pair of those. I had the first magura version back in 94 right after Tomac started riding them. Use to get very strange looks riding them. Kind like the look you got riding discs in 95 or so - that great double take that was priceless.

    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.

    Hey Ive got one of those hubs. Ultralight and pretty rare. Its on a 560gram front wheel. Im a bit scared to use it. Mine is the updated version with the spacers over the axle. They are from around 95-96. If anyone is interested Id sell the wheel for cheap.

    those are the bad-aest brakes i have ever seen in my life.
    i know this is a very long shot indeed...but any chance you might know anyone else with a set of those brakes? i am dying to try one out, and would be willing to trade stuff, too.

    Yes indeed, that just jumped to the number one spot in my "where the hell was I when that came out???" list.

    That lever and the machine tech brakes on ebay at the moment are enough to make me want to go back to riding cantis, if purely for aesthetics.

    got some Machine tech QR's, I now have, NOS Qr's, NOS Hubs front and rear, Brake levers, 2 sets of Canti's and 5 cable hangers.

    I agree with D8, Machine Tech I would (and do) collect not even to put on a bike.

    Has anybody got any McMahon stuff to show?

    someone else can go for the westpines...

    my offer was rejected and since the seller wants more than the wholesale was on the things brand new a decade ago (I was a westpine dealer), I'm not interested in 'em.

    Also have various brakes and hubs on some of my bikes too. The guy that owned Hershey, Greg Gutierrez, was a friend from the LBS in So Cal whan I lived there. His background included bikes and tool-making, a good combination for someone in the CNC chi-chi business. He also did a lot of design and manufacturing work for other bike and component companies.

    Hey "TheBronze", I have two pair of Caramba Double Barrels if you are serious...

    I have a pair of red ones w/ silver spider and a blue pair with green spider (the red ones are only good for single ring, though, as the spider is off by a little bit - the blue and green ones are good for all three rings). Let me know if you are really interested in a pair, you can email me directly through here (or anyone else that has to have a pair!). I'd be interested in trades as well.

    By the way, I'm an old-schooler in terms of being on this board - I was Big Daddy from way back in '99, but for some reason I cannot sign on anymore (new-fangled forums must've screwed things up for me!).

    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.

    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:

    8 speed Suntour thumbies
    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.

    <a href="https://s272.photobucket.com/albums/jj198/proto2000/?action=view&current=SDC11278.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="https://i272.photobucket.com/albums/jj198/proto2000/SDC11278.jpg" border="0" alt="Boone rings"></a>
    Too many bikes, and just enough time to ride them.

Grinning from ear to ear, I pulled out my wallet but he just waved his hand and said "It's your's."

    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.
