I'm pretty pumped with this now! Got some NOS Rollercams, Pink outer cabling(factory fit) and a NOS Hite-Rite coming for it!! Anyone know what the original seat QR was and who made the original pink grips?

Seat QR was a HOSHI I believe. ...if you'd been on here a week earlier I had one :(

Its gonna look great with a set of cams on it 8)

Are you going to put a more period headset on it too ?

It's how I received it. Trying to find an XC9000 groupset now?????.....it would be easier to circumnavigate the globe on a Unicycle!
