I love a good project, and my latest frameset ticks all the boxes for me: Handmade, fillet brazed, u-brake/roller cam brake bosses, nice color.

This shall be a period correct one and looking to put nice parts on it, just have to find everything first. Looks like I have the most except a set of hubs, classic WTB grase guard in black should be the best fit.

I got two forks with this one - one original fillet brazed Otis Guy for cantis and one Koski for roller cams, and I think I'll stick to the latter - more fan of roller cams.

Yes, I’ll do that. Bought the shifters nos/nib, but there was som storage rust on the bolt. I’ll have some M90 Brifters on the way, might be a bit more correct that these M92s.
