Good to see you starting the resto on the C16R, was starting to worry when I the bike at first, but then myself having two I can see why the attraction. Anyway great to see it start it's transition to a 'Chocolate Orange' ditch the chain, as a cheap stop gap £4 will get you a chain (Asda) same with cables, just until you can get something better, 1" Ritchey headset at £10 from CRC is value for money or put a wanted add out. And as my good friend Sylus pointed out gil_m does top notch decals, I've had several sets including for both my C16R's. And Pace Forks pair with Orange like Morcambe & Wise, Cannon & Ball, Apple Crumble & Custard etc etc, I've just picked up some RC38's (My second set for another build) for £80 and they are minty fresh.
Keep with the updates, please yourself not others, and enjoy the Retrobike expieriance in the process
