That is lovely. What chain is it? True dedication to weight loss.

The chain is a Regina Extra SL Superleggera with hollow pins. The skewers are the rare Piro Moroni titanium ones.

Just thinking..

By 1978 (the last year I raced) we had given up on drillium and moved onto aero in a very primitive way. Alf Engers tried hiding the brake levers behind the bars and the front brake was behind the front forks. He even taped the laces down on his shoes LOL

Eventually beaten by a better guy on a conventional Raleigh :)

.......the frame looks like a vertical dropout road frame of the same era :)

Chainring brought a smile to my face. Pound to a penny something went wrong as one of the chainring arms is different to the others.


Hadn't noticed the difference - but that is the 'arm' that drew most of my attention! Must have been a subliminal reaction :wink:
