barn find, original DA and AX gruppo..., new tubs and all metalwork restored, new hoods and tape but still need to detail the frame and will upload more pics soon...

This is a memorial project to the late owner, Derek Houlson who rode with Colin Lewis in Devon.

Lovely, even with the little cable clip. They also ride very nicely.

Thanks! I've got the original wheels also with Mavic sprints and AX hubs, also the original AX stem but too short for me at 70mm, so using a spare ITM till one turns up in my size. Seatpost is stuck tho and about 1 cm lower than my usual ride height... :-(

Looks very fresh and tidy.

I've not seen that type of down-tube shifter mount too often.

Shame about the seatpost, have you given it a good go at freeing it yet?

Well the bottom bracket needs a bit of grease, so will pour some releasing fluid in from the BB shell with the frame upside down and let it sit for a week, then have another go...


:shock:
