The banana is so cool! Keep up the good work.
I have two late 80's reynolds 501 raleigh bikes, the kellogs pro tour and an eclipse. Both similar to the banana but further up the model range. I've owned the kelloggs from new (22-23yrs ago lol)
I've just fitted these calipers to my kellogs and they are brilliant, powerful, look very cool in black, and only £30 for a pair

They are dual pivot so far better than old raleigh brakes. I had to fit the long stud caliper on the rear. Along with new brake cables (only £2) the brakes are awesome, even with the original weinmann alloy levers (mine still work great so not worth replacing IMO)
I also got some new weinmann 700c black/silver wheels for £86 from my LBS (revel outdoors) which had the rear hub machined from 130 to 126 (to fit reynolds frame) and they have transformed the appearance and running of the bike. I was surprised to find a modern style wheel to fit the reynolds and old gearing setup. The rims on modern wheels make braking better anyway IMO
I've also ordered a set of these new retro style black wheels from USA for my raleigh eclipse, which i want to keep more standard/original looking
