Only think I'd do is lose some spacers from under the stem

RM, C2L & NG,

Thanks guys. Yeah I know, but the bars and spacers are comfy and I'm not as young as I used to be! :lol: Think I will chop a bit off the steerer, but I didn't want to do it too early on as I wasn't 100% sure which bike the AC crown was going to end up on.

I need to swop the black sleeving or white, or the white sleeving for black as well.

RM. I've got a piccy at home from when I first built up the bike in '95. It had Judy SLs on it back then and Campy canti's. I'll get it up on here soon.

Cheers! :D

Agree with the bars, but I quite like the black seatpost with the hint of red at the top, balances with the same thing in the forks, while the stem balances with the cranks...

All the cables are now black, Chill Pills fitted, fork cut down and red Race Face headset fitted...

...nearly there after 15 years of ownership!
