I cant believe it was 2009 when I bought this bike and have been massively distracted by my other racer for most of 2010 as well as a house purchase and a lovely baby boy, George.
I thought I would put another update up as I would like to finish the bike by at least the end of the year!
After the bike was purchased I rode it for a while and then ditched the awful Modolo brakes and stripped most of the bike down in order to send it to Mercian for a respray, which didn't happen!
This is where I sit now, I appreciate any advice and ideas etc.
Please exuse the photos I have no good lighting at the moment!
Bike with random rubbish wheelset to keep if off the floor and with Super Record crank and milled unbranded chainrings.
Record hubs with Mavic GP4 rims.
Rear grubby hub, as purchased.
Front hub cleaned up a little, both hubs run like butter. (at the moment)
Nos cable top tube clips.
Record Front dearileur (I think)
Band on levers with stuck cable (now removed)
Super Record rear mech with I think Bulldog alloy jockey wheels. I have been told these were a popular upgrade back in the day.
Super Record 27.2 seatpost
As you can see some of these compnents need a good clean up, I will be test fitting shortly and uploading a pic.
I also have Cinelli bar and stem and campy gear cables.
On the need list:
Campag brakes w/levers and cables
Screw on cassette
I think thats it!
P.S There is some solid old Tub tape on the Mavic rims any ideas on how to get it off??
