Finally cracked the front shifting problems created by sorting the chainline and fitting a M900 front mech. Its taken ages and a number different bottom brackets but I got there in the end. A number of times I almost admitted defeat and fitted the old LX front mech and the wider bottom bracket.

I just need a nice condition Flite saddle and have the rear triangle reconditioned and then its done.

Been deliberating what wheels to put on this. I have the following:

Option 1. XTR M900 hubs with Silver Mavic M231's.

Option 2. XTR M900 hubs with Silver Campagnolo Mirox rims.

One pair will be for this and the other will go on my 1992 clockwork.

Anyone got any thoughts?

hard to say, the M231 are lovely rims. I have never tried those Campy rims.

I am thinking the 231's might be more suited to this and the campag's better on the Orange. Think I will just build the Campags up and have a mix around.

Started to restore this now. New bushes have been ordered and the rear triangle has been removed and is off to Argos for a repaint.

One grotty old rear triangle ready to be sent for refinishing:
