Well done with this Banana mate! It looks fantastic. I must admit I've never been overly keen on the Team Banana colour scheme - that is until I saw your freshly painted example in vivid splendour.
What did you keep from the original build? And what chain set and freewheel/cassette are you using now?
I recently refurbed a Raleigh Equipe and pretty much replaced most of the components, bar the downtube shifters and rear mech which still click together perfectly. Still didn't stop it from a 307 mile mechanical disaster free trip from Cherbourg down to Saint Malo for the TDF this summer.
I've now got a Campag Chorus 53/39 and a mega range 6 speed 13/34 on the back (I used the 34 cog more often than I hoped but I still kept up with my mates on their modern Specialized, Treks and Konas)
Well done with the Banana, cracking job. Here's a shot of my Equipe.https://www.dropbox.com/s/8cmzf88v2zm9f ... 6%2047.jpg
