Very nice bike!
Love to see it with an other bottom bracket, other pedals (grafton speedtraps perhaps), CK and Straight fork.

I love this place. An amazing looking time capsule bike and people start recommending changing things on it!

The bottom bracket is Cook Bros as we as the crank. They are a matched set and the BB has an allen set screw that when loosened allows perfect chain line adjustment.

The pedals and headset are period, but aren't to the same elite status as the other components. They work very well though! :)

You know in truth, I may be off on the make of the cogs because they are not labeled (at least where I can see). I am certain they are Ti. I specifically recall (the high cost) that. I remember the guys at the shop rolling his eye's at the stuff I was buying.

I remember the guys at the shop rolling his eye's at the stuff I was buying. Certainly looks like the same cut, but yours look Alum/Steel? Could be the tooling moved from maker to maker back in those days. Many of the cottage component shops were quite short lived.
