  1. Larsvegas I found these on French ebay and 9/16 thread along with some 76 dated Dura Ace cranks. They did silver, blue and red anno in these.
  2. Damo if your reading this join up Original pads now look at home again.
  3. Lyotard 460d NOSness. Alloy anno black really cool and light for traps.
  4. WD40 only when really clean as it will trap dirt in. Bees wax and wiped off the hub and spokes. They are called Tuff for a reason.
  5. These were pretty bad. Took the bearings and spindles out. Cleaned the hub with brass wire wool and some machine oil. Tried a degreaser first of all. No luck A friend owns a media blasting company and tried vapour blasting them. Made them grey. Dishwasher x2 cleans. Helped. Sanded the brake rub off and got some colour on the brake area. Wet and dry sanded the rest till my fingers said no more. Dishwasher again and then sprayed with WD40 while they were hot. Used liquid bees wax on the spokes but not the brake area. Took some time but really pleased with the results. Getting in corners a pain and dremel helped. Some guys dye them but the dye rubs off on the brake area eventually. The colour is injected so will clean up.
  6. I can't stop checking this out Tom. What a cool build and the seatclamp and hub are killer!!
  7. Linns shop is full of parts he has kept for years. Some finished and some not and boxed up. Prototype ideas and production parts. He sent this picture of a chainrings adaptor plate to use with flight cranks on geared road bikes. He was so busy with Redline it got shelved.
  8. Brian and wagonguy sadly anything is copied these days. High end to low end. Boils my piss tbh. Yes further down the line people can get duped. Not cool. Reason with these I asked Linn to certificate each stem. Saying all parts original but new welds ect... So guys know. I help run the Redline appreciation page on faceache and we are fully aware of fake stems from all over that have been made badly with mig welds and made to look older with acids or the like. Mainly Australian made. Now some made in Mexico. Always ask guys to check welds or send me pictures so I can advise them on the real deal or fake.
  9. The clue is in the title. 25 stem bases or parts for bases Linn had. 20 for sale. 5 he is keeping or giving out to friends. 20 not 200 or anything. All will be certificated saying made with old parts and bases welded recently. No one is out to fool anyone as I wouldn't be part of this. As for cranks he wouldn't make prototype copies as he said some broke in testing.
