My favourite bike of all time! It´s a Crescent from 1979 or 1989 with Dura Ace gears and brakes. Reynolds tubes and fork and Nervex lugs. 3ttt bar and stem. The original wheels are tubular mavics with dura ace hubs but I ride it with Campagnolo mexico clinchers. Zeus seatpost, Silca pump and KKT pro ace pedals (but I ride with ultegra spd´s).

Surely 79 with all those clamps for cables/shifters, pump etc and the BB cable guides on top of the BB shell

Hm, yeah I accidently wrote 1989 instead of 1980! Don´t know if it´s 79 or 80?There´s some chart to get a date of the Dura ace stuff but I haven´t got around to it yet..

Very nice Crescent!
Really like the black first generation Dura Ace crankset.

Is it Nervex lugs in this frame?

Yes nervex lugs. They are outlined with white paint and probably by hand. Think about the cost for something like that today!
