I’ve been gifted this lovely bike, all original (inc. leather straps & clips) except for tyres.

I know, way ahead of it’s time!

This will be a rider as I do a good deal of road riding. May have to adjust the gearing for N Devon though, luckily I have a 14-28 uniglide from an NOS Diamond Back Ascent EX that’ll pop straight on. Will address cranks if I like the way it rides.

Frame is labelled as 58cm but top tube is 56-57cm so more like my Ritchey Logic which is a 55 and suits me fine.

Very nice indeed :)
Even the cateye is in a more aero position :)
It looks like it just needs a wash and lube and it will be good to put in some fast miles :)
Lucky gift :)

I did intend to keep this as original as possible but rideable as well. All that’s left is the frame, forks and seat post!
9-speed, downtube Dura-Ace shifting
Compact chain-set for N Devon terrain.
It’s a nice handling bike I hope to do many miles on.
