Sorry but I have no spare parts anymore. Already gave them all away. Hope life improves significantly for you and soon. I crashed my bicycle recently and have a broken collar bone to show for it. Not nearly as serious as what you have.

gotta say thanks to everybody that posted.told willy first in a pm.parts will be comin starting next week.my brother brought up a mag that was on there 16 or 17 years ago when I first got it.spoked wheels were on it 2 weeks after I bought it.too bad the tire got screwed when I broke all the left side spokes 2 weeks ago.still rode it home slow.kept thinkin if the rest of the spokes broke and planted the front end i'd have died for good.doctors say if someone even punched me i'm dead.

Best wishes for a good and fast recovery mate, sorry to hear you took a spill. What actually happened?

If I had anything to give I would but my spares are for earlier models.
