Lovely starting point. How about a 200gs build?

Nice.

Traditional or modern?

That is the question.

Well, there's a start, next I guess is Campag or Shimano :wink:

Look forwards to seeing this progress.

That is stunning. If it was mine I'd probably go for Shimano, though part of me would be hankering for a Suntour build if I could find the parts...

The paint was done via Roberts according to the previous owner.

Thinking about XT M7XX black components. Would love to go O.R. but so rare.

Now to find a Roberts stem!
