You must have done it, bought a part that was a bit of a gamble ? Then think shite, not so sure now, I'll have to wait until it arrives and find out  :LolLolLolLol:  I'm waiting to find out on such a gamble.
Have any turned out well for you ? I need your happy endings to give me hope  :LolLolLolLol:

Ha!

Bought what I hoped was a TA on de. years ago, 1 crap picture, the forks looked TA 'ish' and the seat post also..........turned out to be JUNK!

Not long after bought a PK on de. again, knew it was a ripper but LG's turned out to be NOS and he 'found' his mint set of baby blue/brown pads and threw them in the deal. It was all-in under 300 euros.....oh the days.....

Good luck!

One bad one good then. With a very good result on the second.

My purchase is not so grand, it's a Hutch head lock. I'm hoping it's a magnesium version though. Apparently the finish on the aluminum version is ano, the magnesium is finished with DOW17, some sort of anodising for magnesium from what I could find on it. The one I've bought doesn't look like a classic anodised finish, although it's very worn and faded. I will know when I pop it on the scales. There's a 10g difference, 21 ish g for the magnesium version.
Fingers crossed 🤞🏼
