Postie came a knocking early this morning with a big box.
Usual frantic opening followed by deep joy
A little spanner work later and a quick blast around the block and here she is.
Groovy Shimano 600 headset and Salsa Roller stem
Shes in great shape for her age, paint will be redone and the front and rear mechs need changing to period correct items. Otherwise she is totally original even down to those thick Shimano heavy duty cables.
I'm going for a really gentle, sympathetic resto on this one. Repaint the frame and fork and new decals, parts will be cleaned and serviced- even keep those cables
A huge big transatlantic Karma beam to Deano the Man for making this all possible and a huge thanks to EdEdwards for getting the ball rolling in the first place- I owe you one dudes.
I will get some better pics later but I'm going for a blast on it for an hour or two.
