Lovely light bike, very little use in it's lifetime :wink:

Some nice parts on here, very rare '75-'80 first gen super record seatpost with two bolt fixing and flutes. Super light 28h mavic or10's laced the lightest way possible with alloy nipples.

WOW! That's smart.

Have you just restored it, or is it NOS?

The cats seem to be pretty impressed as well.

Very nice!! Them's time trial wheels for sure. I never knew they made SR seatpins that long - or is it way past the limit line?

Thanks all.

Mark, the post is definitely not past the limit, with wafer thin 753 I wouldn't want to risk any failure in the joints from running it too far out. I tend to buy bikes a tiny bit small and run the posts highish, that's just how I like my bikes to look :wink:
The wheels were certainly built with a TT style in mind, well spotted. If I find the patience I may even tie and solder the rear drive side.
Shawn.
