Right, as I have started stripping down what I bought last week, I thought I would start a build thread.
Picked up this Graham Weigh 531c frame with campag headset and bottom bracket.
The serial number is 3270596. Anyone know how to decipher? Are the last two digits the year?
Both headset and bottom bracket have come off easily and are in very good condition.
I have a complete 1990 Shimano Exage groupset in excellent condition that is correct for period and will be going on it until I can afford something a little higher spec, and a selection of period bars and seat posts to finish it off as I see fit.
I have also bought a set of the period stickers for the head, down and seat tubes. These have light blue lettering on a white background.
Therefore all I need is a set of 531c stickers and to get the bike painted.
I was thinking sky blue or white to suite period, and I have matching seats and bar tape for both colours.
However my favourite colours are Orange and Green! Decisions, decisions....
The road goes ever on and on.
