This was soooo close to being perfect - only needed some M737 levers, an M737 cassette and a pair of M737 hubs/skewers. However, there are lots of hidden expenses involved in buying a house, so this will soon be for sale I think.
It's no looker or garage queen and was a daily rider up until last summer when I started to dismantle and rebuild it in vaguely period fashion. Wasn't going for a dogologue rebuild but wanted period XT and ended up with quite a few NOS items which I really wasn't too bothered about, but hey. Thanks to those who sold me stuff, I can't remember you all but you're all great!
Let me know what you think.
