Lovely '82 Bertin; Columbus tubeset and Shimano 600. Mavic sprints and SR stem bars and seatpost. Bernard Hinault Turbo saddle. Lyotard pedals with Lapize clips and straps.

More pics when project is completed :D

There's some paint snags to touch in and polish, the rear caliper is a diff model than the front, I've a pair of lush 600 NOS levers with gum hoods and slotted levers to fit and new cables. Also some 600 shifters, the one's on there are Golden Arrow, not that it makes any real difference, I'm just being nerdy :D
The seat post was really scarred and I'm about halfway to getting the scores out.

pedals waiting to be stripped, greased and polished, that's about it; rides like a dream, might put on cork tape instead of the Tressorex for a bit of extra padding tho... not desperately urgent.

Thanks for your appreciation , it's always nice to get feedback.

ah...yes, mudguards cos this is the winter bike, it has clearance and eyelets :)

Brake cables into correct lenghts, compared to each other. :wink:

Yes ...you'll notice the cables are continental routing; front brake left lever, so I'm changing these to GB convention. :)

Well spotted Dutchie - also route the cables behind the 'bars.

Mark.

PS: With all this attention to detail you'll have to enter it in for October's rBoTM.

I was contemplating fitting a set of clinchers for everyday use rather than sprints... may spoil the look tho, what do you think? white or yellow cables guys? :roll:
