i put the aerator seat post on as it happened to be the right size.. new rear freewheel and chain as i didn't want it wearing the chainset - but have kept the old suntour freewheel for historical value :lol:

new tyres were v.hard to find. i'll see if i can find you the type - Michelin centre ridge balloon type...

(and i was trade too but still had to phone all suppliers........)

brake pads are original :-)

The original seatpost is a fluted Laprade, these are easy to find on eBay.

Mine was relatively unused when i got it, original blocks, seat, grips, spoke reflectors plus the green wildgrippers (V. odd). I'll see if i can find the name of the chainset as I think yours really needs it. The front mech is a Sachs which is again odd.

With your forumname I expected to see something like a Johnny T Raleigh or a Cunningham when clicking on the topic ....BUT this is also nice.
