Frame: Pinarello MTB frame in Reynolds 501, frame number M156

Fork: Pin 3 piece fork with chromed sloping crown

Headset: unknown 1" threaded
Stem: ST MTS-100 'Golf club'
Handlebar: ITM cromed steel
Grips: foam (need replacing)
Barends: Far too old for that!

Brakes: Shimano BR M730
Brake Pads: stock
Brake Cables: stock
Cantilever cable hangers: stock
Brake Levers: Shimano Exage STI (non-original)

Shifters: Shimano Exage STI, 7-speed (upgraded)
Front Derailleur: Shimano LX FD-550
Rear Derailleur: Shimano LX RD-550
Derailleur Cables: stock
Cassette: Shamino Exage 7-speed
Chain: unmarked, presume Shimano
Cranks: Shimano FC 6206
Crank Bolts: stock
Chainrings: Shimano Biopace 28-38-48T
Chainring bolts: stock
Bottom Bracket: Shimano(?) Italian theaded 36x24T
Pedals: Wellgo K20427

Hub Skewers: F: nutted; R: Stock shimano
Rims: F Ambrosio Off Road Competition; R: unmarked
Hubs: F: Shimano HBMN72; R: Shimano Exage
Nipples: stock
Spokes: stock
Tyres: F: Schwalbe Land Cruiser; R: Areo ???
Tubes: stock original w. Woods valves?

Saddle: don't ask, don't tell ...
Seatpost: SR MTE-100 adjustable
Seatpost Binder: Suzue

Weight: no idea, but quite a lot by modern standards!

So, a fair mixture of original (I presume) parts plus some early 90s upgrades to the transmission. The immediate steps will be to put new grips on and replace the abomination of a saddle. I have a pair or Suntour Mountech F&R mechs plus Suntour Power thumbies on the way. I'll need to find some suitable 4-finger brake levers too, Shimano, Suntour or Dia-Compe would all be fine I think. Replacing the rear wheel will be the trickiest I think, and I'm pretty certain that a matching Ambrosia rim will be almost impossible so I'll be happy finding a hub and building it into the unmarked rin that's there.

Beyond all that, I think a wholesale swap will be on the cards as I've been hoarding a Campagnolo Centaur gruppo, including wheels, which would be spot on here for a cruising parts. Furthermore I'm waiting on a 1983 Stumpy frame from the US and the Shimano/Suntour setup would be ideal for that!

Further updates and pics as they happen. I just wish the weather was a bit better so that I could go out for a spin!

Cheers,
Gareth.

EDIT - other essential first steps - get rid of that wheel reflector, and the saddlebag bracket!

I'll wait for the howls of, "Where were you then?" but I don't recall seeing a seat clamp like that before.

A Christmas cracker!

Not uncommon in the mid eighties. Sakae/SR is the most common brand, but there are one or two others around, including something similar from Campagnolo.
