Picked up some parts from forum member dan73uk from the post office this morning so I now have a Regina Record chain and another pat 78 rear mech but this one comes with the adjuster screw safety covers which first arrived in 1978.

Nice, a little civilised relief from MM prep?

So I need to swap over a few parts probably make the best rear mech out of the 2. Also in Dan's parcel was a set of chainrings super record outer not sure of the inner. Also got a new set of brake lever blades as the others are pretty scratched up from road rash.

I've also been saving a few bits I got from 132 Lower Richmond Road Putney the shop sticker and these parts.

Trouble for me is the red cable doesn't suit the build I have black and white but really would like blue but maybe should go black :?:

The chain is too short and now I have the Regina its redundant from the build as for the shiny tape thats definitely going on :D
The Bars are criterium versions but may see it I can find some road versions.

That is looking great. I love the sticker touch. I got my hands on three of them from the shop and have used all three on my bikes!
