I found this in a second hand shop for £35. Little did I know what I was taking on. Never done a refurb of vitage bike before, drums yes, bikes no.
Been out of cycling for 40yrs so had little knowledge of bike mechanics, but I have now.
Its a mid 80s Dave Lloyd (Argos Cycles) 753R frame ,753forks.
I managed to trace the origional owner, his name was on the top tube,
"Boardman's business partner and the man behind Manning's Adidas-Sci-Con team, "
He was't very forthcoming with much info, the origional spec was Campag Super Record groupset with Mavic GP4 wheels.
All of which had been stripped off except for the headtube, downtube shifters and front mech.,and been replaced wirh allsorts of bits and pieces alot of which didnt fit.
I didn't want to spend to much ,new bars, brakes levers, seat, seat tube,cranks, B.B., cables,chain, DIY respay.tyres, tubes, etc,etc.
Anyway its done now , havent been out on it yet, waiting for shoes.
Its how far.
