My dad gave me his old road bike, I believe its from the early to mid 80s. It was built up at a bike shop thats no longer open in my home town. It looks to have a mix and match of components from various decades from the research I've done. Any way, here's how she looked when I got her after being sat in a garage for 15+ years





Wheels were chrome steel and pretty rusty, tried wirewool and oil to no avail so ended up getting some alloy rims. It has Hurret derailers and shifters, Regina Corsa freewheel set, Sakae/Ringyo (SR) Silstar pedal cranks and possibly chain ring and GB Sprite calipers. The rest is a mystery to me as is the actual make of the frame so any more info would be much appreciated 8)
