Last week I had a cold so take the car to work and no hurry tot this project. Feel not wel for some days
A few whisky, some extra hours in bed, tender love and good easy music and this "retro bike worker" is almost back on the road.
This Look bike is not the kind of project that must deliver a stunning bike. Then better look at my other projects.
This Look bike just must be functional ok and low cost. Remember this bike will hit the road when snow and salt is on the road!
Feeling better and start collecting and cleaning some parts:
The MKS chains are great for retro bikes. Always have some om the shelves in my cave
These brake levers I found for a few quid. I don't now if i buy some hoods. Cost me 30 Euro! On the winter bike I use ski gloves and maybe just some handlebar tape.
Still a lovely pair of shifters. Never change much gear on the road to work but with a storm even I need to show some more tooth.
The frame has a few red details. So handelbar tape in red?
There was a saddle in my "always surprising me what I've got boxes".
The seatpin is a much harder story. For a frame like this you need a 25mm pin
Not a common one. But this one I bought new for only 10 Euro. I took some weight for the pin. Why? because guy's like I are for the drilling and sawing era
Waiting for a new headset. The old one looks as the cobblestones in Paris-Roubaix.
Meantime I will clean the other parts...........................
