Thats an absolute belter fella, the custom polished parts and paint really look well, my only judgment would be the drilling on the middle chain ring reminds me too much of a disc rotor (Aaarghh disc brakes yuk) and retro post and stem (slimmer) would look more in keeping with the frame? Just my own thoughts.

At first glance I thought those LX cranks were XTR.

Just needs an SRP derailleur bolt to finish it off.

So what's the final weight?

Epic restoration thanks for sharing. The mechs reminded me of this and perhaps an idea for you?

That's what I was thinking too - it'll be a bugger to clean.....
