Thank you, I do intend to get it built up, but I'm a bit stuck with the wheels. I will post a thread in chat looking for help with Nukeproof hubs and hopefully finally get to ride it.

Hi Will,
I didn't realise there was a thread of history behind this when I saw it at your place, really hope you can get a ride before storage.. 8)

Parts-wise, I am now just one step away: some bar mounts for the shifters I just found:

I was hoping to find the later Sachs version of these, with three drilled holes:

Should I try to drill out the additional hole on these, or embrace them as they are?

The Nukeproof wheels are the big sticking point now. I will try to take some photos and create a post appealing for help, as they are the one thing likely to prevent me getting this built and ridden before it goes into storage.

Nope, just clean them up and use them... when you get the correct ones you can flog these off.
If you drill they won’t be worth anything.

Since I've just given away a load of parts and I paid very little for these, what they are worth is not really a consideration, but I do take your point that I would probably wreck them.

I will try to clean them up whilst still keeping a satin finish and once I have the mounts I'll start building the rest up and hoping I can solve the wheels.
