Raleigh Endeavour..... Lock down day? (I've lost count!?) :facepalm:

I've finally got my NOS campagnolo goodies ready to fit.

A massive thank you to Euclid for the Pedals. They really are the icing on the cake. 8)

Went NOS in the end on the bullet shifters as I just couldn't get the RHS one to index through the clicks. I've kept the LHS one as supplied with the original eBay purchase as a nod to original but have used the new grip instead. Still waiting on the crank caps I've ordered as the final touch..... But we're there. It's finished.

I never want to fit another pair of bullet shifters. :facepalm:
They function like the magazine review.... Not very well!!!
If I'd have been fortunate to purchase an Endeavour back in the day, the 1st thing to go would be these. I've kept these specced in the interests of originality, but should the Dynatech ever get seriously used, I'll be changing to thumbshifters straight away.

Here's some pics....

Super clean build that. Love the array of colours in the sun. And the Campagnolo kit looks sublime. Top build, but then I new it would be with you!

really reminds me of flicking through MBUK and stopping at that advert back in the day, I always wondered why they didnt colour code the flexstem but now I can see ..... it didnt need to be, its meant to stand out.
