1) NOS axle and cones for a hi-flange Normandy hub.
2) A new Avocet magnet ring so I can run the RED Avocet 30.

Serial Number 2 of 38.... Officina Battaglin's Arena Di Verona! It is a beauty, too! I bought the Marosticana frame set, too. They are works of art. Now, if Campagnolo would re-release their old Super Record gruppos and Ambrosio would re-appear to make some bars and stems and Nisi would do likewise... I could use some Solidal rims, etc. lol

You'll have to take my word for it, lol! I don't have enough posts to be able to post pictures. FYI, I accidentally 'clanged' the threaded portion fork against the down tube of the Arena frame, causing a small scratch, today... just to get a picture... that I can't post. *GRRRRRRR*

Sorry to hear about the scratch. Think of it as patina.

You should hit the threshold pretty quickly if you participate in one or two other threads. There is at least one introductions thread:

https://www.bikeforums.net/introductions/

Also a "where'd you ride?" thread:

Where'd You Ride Today? (New & Improved)

and if you skim the C&V "front page":

https://www.bikeforums.net/classic-vintage/

I imagine you'll find something which interests you enough to respond.

Oury were and still are big in motocross, mtb, bmx, atv and more, great oldschool brand.

I have them on the Merz and my KZ 1000 dragbike right now.

They work great and I love the aesthetic.

Can't go wrong with Oury grips. I have had owned quite a few pairs and always have loved them.
