Makes me feel sad, two of the best IronHeads. Big loss. Sorry about this. Hopefully, better times coming.

Default BEWARE Of SCAMMERS!

Some users have received PMs from scammers in response to WTBs that they've posted. They tend to follow along these lines, or similar:
"My buddy <name> has what you're looking for, email him on <email address>."
The person sending the PM typically has no posts, and has only just joined the Forum.

There may be a line like this at the bottom of the PM:
"Sent from my TECNO LB8a using Tapatalk"
If you Google a 'TECNO LB8a' (or whatever phone they're using) you'll see that it has a Nigerian origin!




I very strongly recommend that you don't contact the email address.

Please don't reply to the PM either.

Instead please report the PM: cick the 'Report Private Message' button (). Then one of the mods will deal with the scammer.

Shakydave, Ironmick, thank you both. I don't want to sell either one but with the current outlook I have to look at my options. Two years ago I was buying, today I'm selling. Elections have consequences.

Folkie, thank you for the tips. I promise not to respond to pm's I don't recognize or have history with.

Default WTB OEM spoke nipples

WTB OEM spoke nipples from 70’s and 80’s. 15/16″ long, ~1/4″ across flats, slotted head. I can clean them up if not pitted or damaged too badly. Thanks
