I admit that the leather overload is, how should I put it -- wide -- like a camel coat or brown suede shoes. But that's the point.

And if I went for black grips, I'd need a black seat post, and stem and saddle and brakes and headset and hubs and shifters and QRs. And then people would think my bike was anonymous and not vote for it.

lolwut? I don't catch your drift; you lost me; what in the world could you be referring to...
:P

what I should have said- throw some regular grips on there, if there is such a thing; make them any color you like :wink:

Yes - I agree - cork would be better. In fact, back when the exchange rate was good I imported a set; but the dog pinched them and turned 'em into kibble. The supertan leather were next in line in the parts bin. Time will darken them.

Does anyone do non-ergo cork grips in the UK these days?

Sounds good, maybe a ride at Graham Hill or Cunningham Park?

Shimano Rims/Hubs

8) 8) 8) 8) Sweet!

Really like that fork, and those hi rise twin strut bars are amazing. I have a 83 Commando I was going to enter this month. Might still do it, but we should get the Commandos together for a ride, since I'm right across the sound from you.

There's actually a good group of Tri-State members; we all need to organize a meet/ride.

That would be great. I'm finally riding again, after three years, and all I ride are old bikes.
