Just imagine that NOS or second hand parts, bikes and frames are no longer available (All white porcupines worn out, all Fat Chance rusted to death
What would you choose from the current production in order to start or complete a retro project?
For example: Power Grips Pedal Straps are still in production (yeah buddy), so I will choose this stuff (items still in production for years and years)
Other example: in order to have almost the same look as silver Mavic 117 sup rims, I will choose the current silver Mavic XM 719 rims (a retro like replacement)
These situations may be an everyday headache/pleasure for a retrobuilder.
So what would you choose???
