I ended up getting a lbs to sort out the front forks, annoyingly he went and " sorted out " the cockpit and now rather than having the cables tucked away under the tape I have it to contend with but hey won't be doing that again.

Unknown tubing but very light .
Cinelli stem and L.A.series bars.
New campag headset but I think the bearings maybe Tange ( bike shop guy was mumbling and TBH fair I was wanting to leave) but massively better set.

Mixture of Campag and Shimano.

I've had a quick ride and hellish gearing for Pembrokeshire

Ideal candidate for brifters

Has track ends but a gear hanger been added.

Do I like it? I'm not sure and TBH I'd sell it or swap it for another bike, it owes me a tad over £300 , the bike shop bill was far heavier than I'd asked for.

I've tried adding photo but new phone syndrome and I can't seem to reduce the file size

I've use the app - Photo and picture resizer:resize, reduce, batch and it's very easy to use.

The front forks needed straightening and he insisted on replacing the headset bearing which needed reaming out apparently. The forks I couldn't do but everything else I would easily have done
