The brake lever are the standaard type. I think they are from a low end group but for a low budget bike the are ok.

I love it to put some fine details in a bike. How about these strap ends?
Image

The tyres look great on this bike.

Only brakes and cables. But this give an idea what the bike will looks like.

More to come............

Just picked up the thread and read it in one go. You are made of the right moral material my friend and represent why we all love our retro bikes. You have respected the Gios brand there magnificently really enjoyed the story thank you. I really need to plan a trip to ride the L'Erocia on one of my bikes :-)
