I wanted to build a bike for the Eroica, and got the frame from eBay. It's got a lot of chips and scratches, so I didn't want to spend too much money finishing it up. I got the hubs for £23 NOS and they're a bit rough, so I decided to put some cheap Open Sports on for now rather than hunt for proper period correct rims. I wasn't prepared to pay Super Record money so settled for a mix of Victory, Triomphe and Gipiemme parts.
Put a proper crank on it! The 10 speed Centaur is well out of place.
Put some skinwall tyres on.
