Because I am often accused of being a prefectionist you could have put the headset on with the"brand"facing the front.

I admire both the dedication in the"doing"and the dedication with regard to the continuing posts.

When will it all end?

well

it was a dilemma :D .. ended up to the side as i often walk past 'ernie' and end up have a gaze at him lol.. seeing that 600 logo reminds me of the build and effort put in :)

as for the end??.. well aside from paint and decals (i have most of the decals) its pretty much finished unless i DO decide to go the whole hog, i fear the garage queen status!.. its ridden daily at the moment so a long hard think is needed,,,,

as for the posts... my Father lives out in spain and follows the bikes resto through here :D.. he kinda lurks at the moment but i'm hoping that his nearly finished resto on his 86 Raleigh triathlon will maybe getting him posting ;) :)

craig


Hey Zotty, how does the rear mech get on with that wide ratio cluster? I only ask because I have a feeling I may need one when I get my bikle finished, I have the same 600 mech, I'm sure they're o.k up 28t? o.k if you don't run the 30t on a 52t chainwheel? (like anyone would)

Some more info from Cycle Clements Facebook Page

"I think Your frame is the same as the blue one, shown here with Campagnolo equipment but possibly the same equipment as the multi-coloured one. I like the fact that the Super Pro has a 13-18 freewheel. Most of the racing bikes I have in stock now have an 11-32 with a compact chain set as well. Men were obviously real men in the 1980s!

the Super Pro is the model that Tony Doyle used when he rode for Clements for a couple of years during his professional career."


having studied that picture VERY closely it is indeed the same frame

Happy with that! :)
