Re: 1984 Skyway T/A XL

no problem. Once I learned how to successfully switch sleeves out I now have 2 sets of blue/white and one like the auction I sent you. I made them for around $120. Just get these 2 and you are set. WD40 does the trick

This guys sleeves are real clean. there are some that not even soap and water can clean. these cleaned up white white white
