It did help bring some shininess back to the paint. Polish obviously helped too.

Some of it is in really good condition too

Started putting this bike together now.

But first, I wanted to tidy the stem up a bit as it was rusty in places. Baking in the Sun.

Got some parcels last night, so managed to get some of them on. Here it is as it stands now.

8 speed XT. Not sure if cantis are, or whether they're LX. No model number on the back.

Then I've just got to wait three months for the paint on the stem and seatpost to harden! :lol: :lol: :lol:

Or not ! !

Yes, this evening. Meeting a fellow retro rider in half an hour, in Hope, Peak District.
Nothing like introducting it to it's natural environment!
