Suntour Cyclone 1st Gen Derailleur / Shifter Group

SOLD TO OTS This 1st generation Suntour Cyclone group includes a GT (long cage) rear derailleur, front derailleur, downtube friction shifters, and a downtube cable guide/stop. GT rear derailleur was completely disassemble and lubed. There are a few scratches....most notable is the cage pivot nut (not by me...I have the proper tool!) and light chain rub on the spring housing (see photo with pen attempting to highlight this). Front derailleur incorporates a cable stop (not sure if all Cyclones have this or not) and has what appears to be a chrome blister on the inside of the cage (again, see photo). Friction shifters and cable guide/stop are rust free. Lots of photos follow....if you need more detail/pics, just let me know.

Asking $85 for all four items shipped via USPS to the lower 48 states. Subtract $15 if you don't want the friction shifters. Subtract $5 if you don't want the downtube cable guide/stop. Payment via PayPal F&F is preferred, but I'll entertain options.

Excellent group in good shape... A great deal for someone, considering these long cagers go for close to that amount alone on ebay. GLWS.

noobinsf Thanks for your endorsement! Agreed re pricing, but I've been the recipient of many good deals over the years and I'm happy to do the same for others. The GT rears work very well in my experience. I'm using one with a black hanger in place of a Campy Super Record on my Ron Cooper to reach a 32 tooth cog.

@natterberry, hats off to you for pointing out this obvious defect. I was so focused on the chrome blister that I did not see what is clearly evident in the picture. Uncertain if this FD is useable at all, I have sent a refund to @OTS for it's value+.
