That looks great! Those campy components are beautiful. However you should get the bike fully sorted out before considering an entry in the rbotm contest, especially since my bike is entered this month. :D


Thanks fella ... Cheers on the heads up on rbotm .. Leave mine out for now
No chance against your gorgeous entry 8) 8)

Must confess I wasn't keen on colour after first seeing it but the time
Spent cleaning/fettling I really really like it now .. Seen a few single colour coopers and those looked lovely but this has really grown on me :)

Nice :D

Chainrings are super record :) Have a look on the inside of the crank and there should be a diamond with a number in it. IIRC that's the year of manufacture for the 70's

Cheers Shaun .. I did wonder but maybe drive side/non drive side arm was
Replaced at some point .. Non drive has diamond with 3 inside.. Drive side has circle with 0 ?

Very nice indeed 8)

If you hate the Michelin name on the tyres you can remove it easily by rubbing it with a cloth soaked in white spirit :wink:

that's a very stylish ride - nice story as well.

geometry, colours, components - all spot on - that's going to be a joy to ride.

enjoy

don't find time, make time! :lol:
