I bought this as my first foray into road biking about 6 months ago. I didn't pay much for it but after six months of abuse I'm deciding whether it is worth doing a bit of a restoration job on it over the winter. I have done a little bit of light restoration on it to keep it roadworthy, and as you'll see from the photos i'm in the process of changing the freewheel.
I'm planning on doing L'eroica next year with some friends and had thought about using this bike for it so, if I do restore or upgrade it I'd like to keep it period if at all possible. Any suggestions on what to do or what parts to fit would be much appreciated!
