Hello all!

I've just bought this (apologies for the rubbish photo, it's from the for sale ad)

Image

It's a 2000 Lemond Zurich, in Reynolds 853.

Jobs to do:

1) A good clean and lube
2) Fit new tyres
3) Fit new pedals
4) Find a more fitting saddle
5) New wheels

It's going to be my 'american muscle car' build - can't wait! it already is lovely to ride.

nice colour , hey anything with a horizontal top tube looks retro to me .augh yes "a 22 year old American kid named Lemond stunned the pro peleton in claiming gold at the 1983 world's outside Zurich" looks like steven roche got a medal too. m mm selle san marco techno dynamic saddle , i bet that would be hard to get ! ultegra 8 mavic open 20 , cinelli modal 64/66 . i bet 853 feels really good.Ride the name with pride man!
