Casually scanning ebay the other day I found one of the decal sellers has started doing the correct decal set for my Mk2 TDF so its finally time for this mail order catalogue Christmas pressie special to shine once again.

I'd already stripped down the wheels a while ago and re laced the hubs into some polished alloy rims so next is to work out what bits to build it up with? I want to keep it as catalogue correct as possible but I do want to upgrade things a bit whilst keeping within the Raleigh parts bin world so below are a couple of pics of where I'm at so far with a few bits already upgraded from original.

There's a fair bit of cleaning and polishing to do along with a frame to paint.
I'm not sure whether to keep the suicide brake levers or the hooded ones and derailleur wise I might go a bit farther up the ladder as I've a spare set of Campag 980 somewhere which I just need a set of levers or even just a downtube clamp for as I've got plenty of levers to fit brazeons.
