This is not a touch on Pete's great efforts but thank you for your kind words.
I have really enjoyed getting it back up and running. A couple of thing still need looking at. Really want to get out there and ride it just don't want to get it dirty. :lol:
Looking forward to the next restoration project.

Fantastic effort...I must admit I was a bit nervous when I saw signs of braided cables on such an old bike but I think you've pulled it off....nice one :wink:

Does that seatpost have a slight bend in it or do I need an eye test?

Alas your eyes are fine, The post has a slight kink in it.
(I prefer to call it layed back)
If i could find a pair of syncros Ti bars the post would be a matching one from my Klein. on the other hand, Its a shame Pace didn't make a post to compliment the fine bars they sold as the old Post/Bar matching combo is a rule i like to keep to when building a bike.

To say it is still an ongoing project would be an understatment.
I will have to sort out the headset as (though it works fine) it doesn't go with the colour scheme.
Other little bits here and there need fine touches.

Cheers for the comments so far.
