thanks to alison a.k.a. isaac g.
i now own this orange p7.
the lacquer is coming off in places but it all seems pretty solid.
my plans are to use this for charity rides and the occasional retro ride.
thanks to alison she kindly supplied nearly a full bike, with some very nice components.
so i spent a few hours this afternoon assembling the bike.
the headset was a bit frustrating getting it seated right.
and i had to use an x lite seatpost, as the orange seatpost supplied is too big for the shim supplied.
the saddle is my trusty brooks.
i took the wheels off my peugeot.
and i got a puncture proof schwalbe slick tyre, to go with the continental slick tyre i already had.
all i need is to fit the cables & a chain.
