After emailing back and forth with Richard (TGR), he told me to show some of my bikes here.
Now, a few months later i started this built and registered here and there it is, my '85 Merckx pursuit.IMG_0866
i also had this laying around and tought it would do honor to the frame and vice versaIMG_0867
But first, a bike is not a bike without some "decent" wheels. With the frame came a 650c mavic 4 CD laced on a suntour gpx hub, so went to search a 700c mavic and about a month ago i've found one for a small price. let the lacing begin.IMG_0884
a little help came unexpectedIMG_0886IMG_0891IMG_0888IMG_0906 IMG_0916 IMG_0922 IMG_0918 IMG_0936IMG_0934 IMG_0932
And this is where i am for now, next things to do are:
- drill holes in the steer for cable routing
- change BB because it's to big
- go pick some leather for some almarc style steering wrap that matches the saddle
also, i'm still searching a chain to match, i found a suntour chain with messing/gold like outer plates and black inner. regina extra oro is a bit to expensive, or will i just go for some clean silver chain?
oh, some c record aero pedals and a 700c Wolber SL19 tire are also on the wanted list.
feel free to tell me what you think of it
And i apologize in advance for bad writing/spelling.
