Finally, after almost a full year in the shop, the resto on my beloved Sport is (nearly) complete. She's still without her decals, but everything else is in place.
This particular bike came with Dura Ace front and short cage rear mechs (the rear was still called "Crane"). Other Aerospace Sports came with Titlist front and rear. It also had Viscount sealed bearing high flange hubs, Sugino Maxy 5 pin crankset and never had the infamous cast aluminium fork, but a lugged cromoly full chrome fork.
Because of the Dura Ace history, I decided I would try and rebuild the restored frame with as much first generation Dura Ace as I could find. The end result is below. The front mech is original, as is the frame. The rest of the bike is new or near new.
I've since found out that Viscount created a race bike very similar to this, with the entire first gen DA groupset (black), sprint rims and Shimano drop outs. This bike exists in catalogues online but no extant examples have ever been sighted. My bike is a kind of homage to it.
The Dura Ace components: hubs, BB, seat pin, brakes, derailleur, cluster.
How does she ride? As good as if it were a NOS Super Record gruppo... only better!
