Ok, last update before I finish it I think.
I've already received loads of stuff through the post (including the longest ever seatpost - 400mm is huge!). I'm respraying some thumbies, polishing cranks (see below), touching up, cleaning, winning stuff on ebay (including some things I never thought I'd get at all!) and generally trying to get it finished...
Cranks that are going on...
Tyres - I know not the original equipment but they look good and aren't blackwalls. I was able to afford these after buying 3 pairs and selling on 2 pairs on here (one pair went to the Zinn featured recently which will be perfect!).
Anyway the aim is to get it close to the spec I had in 1992 but not having the blue grips and toe straps (have you ever tried getting blue toe straps - impossible!!) and going for black bars and seatpost. I am sticking with silver drivetrain as I hate black cranks - they always look scruffy.
I'm spending as much time sorting this bike out as someone might do with a Fat Chance or Merlin, but this is a bike which will mean a lot to me and I'll never sell it so I need to get it right, despite my daft small budget.
Anyway, keep a look out - I'll have much better pics of the full bike when it's done and you can all swoon in admiration at the gaudy zebra stripes and inspirational build spec.
