Bar tape fitted now but I have ordered another lot because the stuff I have is shiny and I really don't like it :lol: New pedals now too. I got annoyed with the 105 set so switched with these;

The pedals are Lyotard steel, Toe clips are Brooks and straps are WellGo.

The only thing I need to get now is the stickers and I'll probably swap the brake lever with a Weinmann one.

i saved one of those from a skip back in the early 90s many a happy mile before it finally got passed on to someone who had just had their bike stolen.

Same paint scheme, it was nice...especially for the price :D

Got new tape fitted and a Weinmann lever.

Got to get a new crank as the left side is stuck and I can't grease the bearings and they're 'squealing' so I'm gonna look for a Shimano one.
