That right will be left for the next owner....he knows who he is. :) I don't want to take anything away from his joy of ownership.

It is a beautiful bike.

First gen Shimano XT cranks sporting era correct (but not really loved) Shimano biopace rings.

First gen Shimano clipless pedals. Ummm, what can I say, I really like to be clipped in. ok ok admittedly a few years premature for this build, I do have a set of XT pedals set up with straps. Just never put them on.

Campy brake levers.

This bike is simply a pleasure to ride.
I think you will find everything timeline precise outside of the pedals.

Thanks,
T
