Thanks for the nice comments guys. Of course this bike is a keeper, I don't think I'd ever be able to find a replacement, especially in Australia in this condition. It's now proudly displayed up high on a double bike stand in my house and looks great, and I do ride it on occasions but didn't want to use it as my No 1. bike when I took up riding again last year. I had to go out and buy another for everyday use, a 09 Ridley Excalibur with all Super Record 11 which weighs 7kg. The ALAN only weighs 9kg which is not bad for a 25 year old aluminum bike. The ALAN bike has the original first Black LOOK pedals which are a bit heavier than the LOOK Keo 2 Max carbons I have on the Ridley, but 'OH BOY' the older pedals feel much better and easier to get in and out of - really like them.
Back in the 80's putting together a bike like this was a lot more difficult and very expensive in Australia - we were a bit isolated and there was no internet, just bike magazines to look at. I had friends buy me parts when they went overseas - which was problematic. I agree with 'Fingers' and wish I had all Campagnolo SR to keep it all true and Italian, but I'm not complaining. WOW hasn't the world changed, I bought everything for the new Ridley bike on the net in just a few weeks, and the whole bike cost me less than half the price it would have from a local bike shop.
