Thought i'd post a few photos of my Look Kg86 (1986) build. Bought the frame a couple of years ago and thought it was about time i built it up. It's a 62cm frame, so the largest frame size they made these in i believe. Dura Ace parts with Mavic rims.

I used a DA 7700 chainset as i couldn't find 180mm DA7400. Not had the chance to use it much over the Scottish winter but the glaciers seem to be shifting now!

Anyway....

That's huge!


Looks like you have 650c wheels in it as a result!

Would have liked an original seatpost, but it probably wouldn't be long enough for me anyway.
I'm 6'5" and it's actually still a bit small for me if anything :lol:

Thanks for the comments. Hopefully be heading to Mallorca with it at some point this year.

Just returned from a great 5 days in Majorca. Well over 300 miles and 27000 feet of climbing. I don't know why people buy new bikes this thing is fantastic. Only had to tighten the 1R stem daily apart from that never had a tool near it. 8)

Few photos... (yes the rear light looks stupid but there are a few dark tunnels to consider)
