Completed Restoration Of This Rather Nice Dave Quinn Reynolds 531 Road bike
What Do You Think
Fantastic Ride
Really Quick And Responsive
This Will Be My Winter Work Commute.
The Only Thing I Need To Change Is The Bar Tape
Will Replace With A Nice White Perforated Tape (Any Ideas)

Nice looking bike. If you can find it Stella Azzurra Eleganza is nice if you want perforated. I use their Techno Spugna and highly recommend it. How about blue tape to match the forks?
While you're re-taping how about changing that stem, rotating the 'bars a bit and putting the brake levers lower?

I'm guessing you have it set up that way for comfort so I'll be quiet now...

Mark.

Hi
The salmon profil solid alloy mudguards are awesome
They are rigid and do work well in the wet
Iv'e actually taken it off the road to replace the horrid stem with a nice quill stem.removed the salmon pink bar tape with a blue variety
there will be other photos to follow soon
thanks for the comments
