A proper education, cheers! :D

I've passed on all the info & my thoughts (that it's a world better than the modern trash we'd be buying at the same price point :wink:) and I'm waiting on the product of the mulling-over. I'm hopeful...

Whereabouts are you? Would hopefully be able to pick it up :)

I think she's close to convinced - would be a first Retro project! 8) :D

Can I just check how the frame is for rust? Looks cool in the pics, just want to be sure it's good to go as it is.

Also (forgive my ignorance) does the Campag BB use a different taper to Shimano/JIS? I'm guessing it comes out okay too?

Assuming all that's all good, I reckon £80 collected would seal the deal, no commission charged... :wink: :lol:

Thanks Malc, Caernarfon shouldn't be a problem - any excuse to head into North Wales! 8)

The lady in question (I'd best be polite as she's lurking :wink:) is dropping in in the morning for me to check her sizing on my late 80s bike - so should have a definite answer (and probably a cheeky offer) for you by lunchtime, hope that's okay :)

Deflowering a Retrovirgin - exciting! :shock: :shock: :shock: :lol:
