Here's my Iron Horse from the 90's. Last Summer I toured the Europe with it. Next month it's time to conquer Sweden and then a longer tour from Amsterdam to Bryssels.
I had to change the LX-shifters as the old ones got jammed in the Finnish Winter and I got tired to service them every week. The NOS LX shifters are still true to the era. The only new part is FSA riser bar I picked from CRC at a bargain price. I'm loving it. The Ritchey pedals came from my Sunn race machine. I have serviced them once in the last 15 years. Great pedals. The only iffy part is the Ritchey head set which is busted. Luckily, I found NOS and already ordered a new one.
The frame is classic double butted 969-steel and there is no rust. I find it amazing as I use it every day in Finland. Our climate is about as harsh as it gets. One day I was biking to work when it was -40C.
The front tire is Nokia W106 studded tire I bought in the 90's. In those times Nokia still made their tires here in Finland and they made them to last
I know that it's unconventional to shoot the bike facing the past (mental image as we read from left to right) but for retro bikes it seems appropriate as we are always searching NOS parts and are laughing at these plastic frames they are now offering.
