I've looked for differences between RD03 my but I haven't found anything.
I'm not talking about differences between countries, but differences between a 1988 RD03 and a 1989 RD03.
From what I've seen, the 1989 RD03 doesn't have grese nipples on the rear swing arm and the front hub is...
The nipple ends of these blighters often snap off.

Thank You !
Im new here and Id like to say thanks for all the useful infos here on the forums!
Anyways, I have an issue, I have bought an old, a bit ugly RD04, and now im reshaping her back to her proper (original) looks. I started rebuilding the rims and I managed to save all the original spokes...
Do i need these in my tyres?
they got lost when were sent out for truing after a rebuilt and i get new tyres and tubes fitted.

Well, in a manner of speaking!
Washing the bike the other day I noticed that there was a split in the front rim next to one of the spoke holes, the rim looked a bit crappy when I bought the bike and changing both of the rims was always one of the things that I was planning on doing but I was...
