Now the building work round here is as good as complete , I might concentrate on some bike building again, although a few additions to the Klein fleet today may distract me some what!

Got these NOS Campag cables today and some shifter mounts which I am hoping will allow me to mount the shifters to the brake levers instead of using the cheap clamps they come on.

This is it in it's "prototype" build phase! Once it's all up and running and I have checked there aren't any issues it will be getting stripped and then painted, less risk of any paint damage at final build stage like this I felt, bit over the top perhaps but that's what I am doing. I do have a hic-up now as the BB axle is way too long so looking for a 122mm.
