Last time i showed the AMP fork in the Nuke proof but for some reason i didn't like to look of that.
I wanted something different
On the local Marktplaats I found something really really special; a Manitou 3 Disk
This fork is brandnew, only put in a bike once for a showbike from the SACHS factory.
Sachs was the first with a working production disk brake called the powerdisk
It came complete with the front wheen and Sachs New Success hub.
I have never seen anything like this before, but that hub is soooooo pretty and it runs forever if you give it a swing
Because i like matching parts i started looking for a matching rear hub but ended finding a complete nos Sachs new Success group,..absolutely gorgeous, a bit heavy but looks like bullet proof like me.
Also visualy it looks great icw the blue of the Nuke Proof Decals.
