Thanks for that, although I can't really be bothered taking the fork off to check... ;)

Thanks for the info, I will be taking the P2 out, but the impact headset seems to be mounted very rigid...

It will b ea surprise if it is a TB or a SB :-)

I've just got one of these myself, and am in process of returning it to as near to how it left the factory as i can.

Any chance of some pictures of the skewers, and the brake levers and calipers please?

Very nice looking bike :)

The whole idea behind getting this bike is to keep it original. I'll probably change the tyres to save the originals, but nothing other than that.

It does need a bit of a tart up in some areas, but it should get those in the coming weeks, although making some touch up paint could take a while.

The skewers are just the heavey steel type, but I can take a photo later tonight.

A poor photo of the brake lever is below. The bolt hole for the bar end lever add on makes them a rather uncomfortable, but you never know they may suit your fingers ;)
