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!

Image
Bike with random rubbish wheelset to keep if off the floor and with Super Record crank and milled unbranded chainrings.

Image
Record hubs with Mavic GP4 rims.

Image
Rear grubby hub, as purchased.
Image
Front hub cleaned up a little, both hubs run like butter. (at the moment)
Image
Nos cable top tube clips.
Image
Record Front dearileur (I think)
Image
Band on levers with stuck cable (now removed)
Image
Super Record rear mech with I think Bulldog alloy jockey wheels. I have been told these were a popular upgrade back in the day.
Image
Super Record 27.2 seatpost
Image
Skewers!

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:

Seat
Campag brakes w/levers and cables
Campag headset
BB
Tubs
Tub glue/tape
Screw on cassette
Chain
Pedals
Bar tape

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??

I loved the look of the calipers as well that is why I bought them in the first place, unfortunately they didn't function very well! The levers were plastic which made the braking quite interesting!

Update:

Record brakes arrived in rather grubby condition

Before: (you should have seen the back of them)
Image

After: (eagle eyed will realise one is the front brake and one is the rear)
Image

I think the blocks have had it!

Image

2 x brake adjusters required as these are in quite a state!

Image

Anyone know where I can get some from and what is the correct terminology for them?
I have almost cleaned up the wheels also but will post pics when I have the freewheel/Tubs on them.

Thanks for looking!
