    From memory it's a Sunrace shifter. I can't lay my hands on it immediately but if it sounds OK I'll send you some pics.

    I have a set with Miche flip flop large flange hubs laced to deep rims in black which have been destickered but I believe are also Miche. They've clearly never been braked on but I'll have to check if they're the type with silver brake surface surfaces or if the surfaces would also be black like the rest of the rims. If you're interested ill dig them out of storage and have a look.

    I have a nice BLB stem you might be interested in. Length is 80mm and the other details fit the bill. Can send you a few pics.

    I went to my LBS and they were able to remove a broken off bolt that had gotten seized in the threads n the crank itself. Probably easier to try this instead of sorting a replacement straight away, but of course there's a small risk it could be too seized.

    I have a nice set somewhere which I remember have titanium axles. Probably look compatible but will have to pull them out to be sure. Obvs pretty exotic and spend though, so wondering if they'd be suitable for the bike you'd have them on?

    OK, but which of the two sets did you want? As mentioned, they're both Avanti, but only one has the model name writing on them. I'm only increasing the model name one's price due to the fact that I've the rest of the Avanti groupset somewhere, and this also has the writing on, although I'm not hugely bothered either way. I can send you a pic if you want.

    OK well I've got news of my search but you may not like it. It seems that the broken right hand lever I mentioned was replaced with a working one at some point, but I'd forgotten this when I told you I'd said I had a pair where one was broken. And my search also turned up a second Avanti pair but this time with the Avanti model marked on them. So this being the case, I feel I couldn't sell you a single lever but if you'd like one of the sets I'd be happy selling you that, although of course you might prefer to hold out for a single one. The other option is I just sell you the broken right hand's hood, which I know you're in need of. If you bought one of the sets then I'd throw in the hood.

    I have a nice modern Miche large flange set although the rims have been destickered. Although perhaps you've already sorted something since posting your ad?
