Why does the word "Sante" keep popping into my head?


Sante - basically Ultegra in white dating from late 80's.

Yay for Santé!!

I have an '89 Raleigh Record Ace in white with it. It seems to be Shim 600 (as it was then) covered in white. It flakes off the crank and the rest scratches easily though.

Not keen myself...reminds me of those all-white XR3s etc with matched grilles around 1987...

Sorry, highly polished Campag for me. :D

I have some '94 105 kit that could probably do with a good home if you are missing the kit that badly.

105 is still on the Shimano website.

Sante. It was acceptable in the '80s. I still like it. I would like it even more if the crank wasn't flaking off!!
