I like that a lot.

Looks original, very 'factory'.

Looking forward to seeing it finished 8)

Besides that a Dia Compe is hard to find and would probably not last a life time, the CK is just a detail that belongs on a bike. Therefore I choose the CK. And it doens't affect the looks.

fair enough, but the seller does have lots of them, and will probably do you a postage deal. I have bought two so far for different bikes and will probably buy more too!

Let me know if you want me to pm you the details, and no I don't have a vested interest just sharing the love
