Hiya,

Thought I'd share a few photos of my newly restored rourke. I bought it cheap on ebay (originally blue) and have just had it resprayed at rourkes. Pretty pleased with it.

Cheers. It's a bit of a mongrel in that its got a really short wheelbase and pista bars, but touring wheels. But.. it rides really nicely. There is a bit of a mix of components. I've retained what I could from when I bought it but had to replace the rear mech (which was destroyed); the stem (which needed to be burnt out); headset; the saddle; the brake levers, as well as the bar tape and tyres.

Components are:
Campag Super Record (second gen) rear mech
Campag Record front mech
Campag Record Strada crankset
Simplex SLJ friction shifters
Campag GS brakes
Shimano 600 Arabesque levers
3ttt Pista bars with San Marco leather bar tape
Cinelli 1A stem (new)
Campag Record headset (new)
Campag Nuovo Record seat pin
San Marco Regal saddle (new)
Mavic Module 3 CD rims / Mavic hubs with Panaracer Pasela TG tyres
