Ok, so it's been an age since I did a retro build. I have a yo eddy in the garage waiting to get a full campag build but this ones first. Frame courtesy of Giom of these parts, wheels and other bits from forum dwellers too. Just the saddle and grips are new and NOS post.

What I daydreamed about when I was 12!

Hope you like.

Cool, nice to see it built too. What size was your seatpost out of interest...?

29.8mm seatpost in the end. Bloody odd size! Could squeeze a Thomson 30mm in there but it's tight. The roox was on eBay for £50 NOS. Happy about it all but I'm not sure about the white cable outers.....
