Just a few pics of my Harry Hall acquired recently - before and after mods. It has an 8 speed Campag ATB chainset - Athena? Came with a Sora derailleur and rather beautiful Shimano 600 downtube shifters. But I preferred ergos so kept my eyes out for bits. Eventually found a new(!) Record 8 speed cassette, 8 speed chain, Veloce derailleur and ergos. Took it to Gary Harris, my local Bristol mechanic, who did a superb job of transferring and setting up everything:

And it's a superb ride!

Looks like a limo-comfy long hauler. Excellent work mate.

Looks great.

I don't suppose you fancy another project...?

I saw your ad - that bike is an absolute bargain! But I have three bikes now. I'm sure someone will snap it up. Try putting it on other forum boards classifieds eg CTC and BikeRadar. Those are v good places to advertise. The CTC one has a lot of old school stuff - would be a good place for it.
