Great work so far! 8)

Kudos for having the vision with the Lotus Liveries and following it through..... especially seeing you're doing 2 at the same time!

Keep up the good work. 8)

Campagnolo question. Is the Miche Cassette you're using on a Campagnolo hub?
.... looking for alternatives if I can't find a suitable Centaur Cassette to match my hub.

Cheers.

Cheers for the Kudos...

Re the Miche “Primato” 8 speed, yes it fits the Campagnolo hub perfectly. It also has the small key tooth so I guess it can fit a Shimano hub.

There’s one on eBay going cheaper right now

Then I hooked up the crank set. When I bought them, I knew they weren’t Elucid, but I’m still not sure what they are, perhaps Victory from the end of the 80’s? Tidy though…

116 BCD? I'm pretty sure they are Victory, the same as I have for my Aende, but the rings aren't original.

Yeah... almost definitely Victory, just like yours. I wonder where the rings came from? Definitely stamped as Campagnolo though.

Sure they aren’t the exclusive Campagnogo rings from Ken Wong of Kowloon MTB emporium

Quick note for BoyOBoy,
If you do choose to use the 8 speed Miche hub, in my experience it works better with the Record 9 speed chain, it’s (obviously) slightly slimmer than my usual go to chain, the Shimano HG51 (6,7,8 speed)

Fitted the front mech & chain tonight plus the clamp on low pully wheel to accommodate the down pull Campy. I wish it was silver/plain aluminium though.....
