This is my first post on this website and I wanted some advice. I just got a 1989 MCS Pro frame and forks measuring about 19 inches in very good shape. I used to race a free agent and MCS back from 1991-1993 so I've been out of the loop for ages. I have a budget to keep so could you guys recommend some old school parts for a rebuild? I had no idea the stuff I used to get had become so rare now! lol. I basially need everything except the frame and forks. I kind of want to go with a one piece crank set up. Thanks.
My advice would be, if your going the economy route and you want to stay era correct the go with odyssey. You can get cranks, pedals, post, clamp and probably brakes for less than a buck 50. and you can newer ame grips and a ropop dominator on the cheap also. you can also check out porkchop for some retro gears and wheels.
Post a pic of the frame and fork. since the serial numbers aren't date coded it's hard to nail down an exact year on these bike, so you have to use the build characteristics. does yours have an oval tube or a flat gusset behind the bottom bracket? do the fork dropouts have cutouts?
