The frame was baking in the Australian sun for 2 days so I wet rubbed with 2000 wet paper and then some cutting cream and final wax with my top shelf Auto Glym super resin polish (to expensive to buy I won it at a car show :lol: )assembled the head set and fork plus the seat post. Not sure of the brand of the forks I bought them about 20 years ago to replace the co mo ones I was using in 1985,my LBS got them in for me, can anyone identify them?

STI cable ajusters mounted on lug. As a side note the outdoor table I took these photos on today is the same one in the construction pictures at the beginning of my thread :D :D in 1984 !!!

Looks like a SR fork. Stock fork on Cannondale among others in the early 90's

wasnt happy with the cranks,i am a bit fussy :) found another set on ebay came the other day and they are even better than the photo,next best thing to NOS,not NOS so you dont want to take them out of the box but nice to put on a bike you intend to ride.

almost together now,got some feelers out for some NOS Mavic Open 4 CD see how that goes :lol:
may have to use the modern Open Pro,the rims i have are very worn on the braking area and would detract from bike,its that fussy thing again :roll:
