Just completed build of a French STARNORD NOS road bike,These French bikes where built during the 70s. I purchased the bike at the end of last year complete boxed with all of the components blister sealed on to orange cardboard sheets. but I have only just got around to building it up.
For pics see: http://picasaweb.google.co.uk/2435wall/20100802#
Inside of Frame , Handlebars and steel rims have been coated with LPS3
the paint work has been left as is (chips n all) how ever as the decals had not been sealed I have clear coated the frame so that they will last longer.
all of the ball bearings in the hubs , headset and bottom bracket have been replaced.
Brake blocks have been replaced with Koolstop Salmon as these are supposed to to be the best blocks for steel rims.
New inner tubes and tires have been fitted.
