I've got the original wheel and tire set with Phil hubs, Uniroyal Nobbys, and Regina Freewheel. LGF-it was built in '77-78.

Yep, that's some hot stuff right there. Can't wait for the completed pics.

Are these "before" pics? Looks like it got to you in good condition. Or have you done a bunch of work to get it to that state?

Those are "during" pics. with the Gruppo and wheels just cleaned up, nothing original is worn out at all, kinda a low time rider that's been in storage for many years--

So when are you welding the disk tab on and fitting the Rebas?

(Sorry, most humourous thing I could come up with from my pool of drool). :)

This is one bike that has earned its place in the sun, preferably preserved for eternity rather than hammered down singletrack.

As sweet as it gets.
