Looks as sharp as the one in the catalogue! I do same with cassettes. Always go for biggest. Looking at same for a Clocky 7 speed. All my bikes get ridden & it's always uphill to get home.

Made some progress last few days and thoroughly degreased, polished and regressed the drivetrain!

Spotless!!!!

Just got brakes and cables and few finishing bits to fit and we’ll be all done.... :D :lol:

Will get some proper pics in the sun (I hope) for its final picture parade...!

Very nice indeed. It’s good to watch another P7 rebuild: I’m not too far behind with my ‘94/‘95 model.. polishing my way through the group set currently. I stripped the dead laquer off with a blunt blade and even a fingernail... had been raced then stripped to a frame and sat for years near a window I reckon.. decals faded to cream on one side, bright orange the other haha. First Orange I’ve been involved with, so far been delighted with its build quality and details.

Looks fantastic! Loving the amberwalls too. Looks like your sidewalls have survived better than mine for sure.

Nah mine were as new on the tread but the Amber section had dried and crumbled to expose the cords. Waste! Would love some new amber wall knobblies but they seem to be rare now
