thought i'd update this again as i have got a few more things sorted on it.
first the brakes, i couldn't get the sachs levers to work with the bar set up, so they had to go, i picked up some cheap dia-compe bar end levers and because of the lever design the cable doesn't go through the inside of the bar but it is underneath the bar tape and looks pretty neat, probably more so when the profile bars are fitted, i have some Profile Century ZB bars, modern but they'll do for now till i find something more in keeping. the brakes are surprisingly powerful aswel.
the gears, bit of a nightmare, i originally built this with a 115mm b/b, this gave a pretty good central chainline but the front mech hit the inside of the crank arm, or if adjusted rubbed the chain constantly, also the short chainstays meant that the inside of the crank arm where the pedal thread is catches the chain still at the 10 o'clock position, i decided to sacrifice the chainline to suit the top ring more, currently there is a 122.5mm b/b in the bike, vast improvement and does still work ok in the inside ring although it still catches the inside of the bottom of the crank in top gear, short chainstays being the issue i think but the front mech problems seem to be a lot less but still need more tweaking.
another thing i am not 100% happy with is the stem. mainly because the bolts do up from the bottom, looks neat and tidy but if they failed the bar would drop straight onto the front wheel which i am sure would cause an awful crash but prices of stems in 26.0mm seem to be daft so this will do for the moment, it just doesn't inspire confidence!
anyway, here's a few pics
You have enemies? Good. That means you've stood up for something in your life.
