Finally got the front end sorted out. Bought a Cinelli XA stem from here. It took a lot of work to get it the way I wanted it. Needed stripping and polishing. The Cinelli Logo at the front was missing paint so needed repainted. The rubber insert was not the correct one. Kermitgreen sent me a Karma One. Thanks!

Mounted the Cinelli bars and restored Super Record levers, cables attached and we are nearly good to go......

I've fitted one of those reproduction Turbo white saddles. I think I will look out for an original at some stage....

Just fitted my home made Merckx bottles. Looking pretty good even if I do say so myself. Just the pedals to go and we are done...

I'm not looking forward to cleaning up these. I dont know if the pedal bodies are anodized or not so I am just gonna try tinfoil on the toeclips and autosol on the pedals.

Hi Stephen,

Great job with the pedals - perhaps we could have a RB Pedal Polishing competition.

Round One - Kettlo vs Ian Raleigh!!! :D

Outside pics are the next bit - between the showers and hail stones!!!!
