Just a little Top Tip for handlebar insertion though a pinch bolt stem bar clamp..

Image

Rather than use the ol' Screwdriver "technique", thread the bolt in from behind, place a coin between the pinch segments and wind the bolt in; not excessively, just enough to push the clamp open..

Push the 'bar through.. 8)

Yeah, I remember loving the utilitarian look of the Deluxe in the catalogue; no flare, just game..

The frame is a Reynolds 853 Main Triangle / Columbus Nivachrome Stays mix..
