Nice save on the Humber, the patina on the decals and headbadge is lovely. Hope you can preserve them. It also has side pull brakes which makes
it much more useable than a bike with rod brakes.
The Humber's tucked away in a nice dry environment so it won't deteriorate. A bit of an odd one having cable brakes so early as many Humber bikes manufactured lafter 1947 were still being produced with rod brakes. I do wonder if they were a special order.
What are the bits on the ALAN? It looks a bit like an early Chorus rear mech, but I could be wrong.
If you look on the bottom bracket there is usually a serial number that gives an idea of the year.
The date stamp is on the seat post tube and is 1080 which I take to be October 1980
There's a bit of a mixture on the ALAN
Headset - Campagnolo Super Record
Chainset - new Stronglight (I know but it will be changed in time)
Front derailleur - Campagnolo Record 1052/NT (3-hole narrow band)
Rear derailleur - Campagnolo Athena which looks kack and spoiling the looks, waiting on a Campagnolo 4001 Super Record (2nd gen. ver. 1) arriving through the door
Brake calipers - Campagnolo Athena
Brake levers - Campagnolo Xenon composite so they have to go and I'm waiting on some Campagnolo C Record levers arriving
Seat post - Campagnolo Super Record 2.Generation
Stem - Cinelli 1A (early version)
Handlebars - 3ttt Record Grand Prix (dual groove)
Gear levers - Simplex SLJ, Retro-Friction (later version)
Hubs - Mavic 500
Rims - Rigida Ultimate Power
Tyres - Maxxis C1115
Saddle - Intake Race Bodyfit
Pedals and straps new cheap rubbish until I find something suitable
So when it's finished it will still be a bit of a mish-mash but I'm liking the way it looks
