How do you guys handle resprays of frames with riveted on metal headstock logos/badges?
Do you mask and spray around or remove and re-rivet?
If the latter, how do you re-rivet?
I'm inclined towards removing the badge for a proper respray but other than pop riveting the badge back afterwards...
I'm hoping someone can help me out.
I'm planning to mod my 1984 Raleigh Corsa to accept a modern Campag Veloce 10 groupset.
This includes setting the frame and forks to take modern wheels.
Doing it properly means heat which in turn means a respray.
I'd like to refinish to original...
Can anyone help identify the model and era of the Look pedals pictured below please?
They look very early, PP65 perhaps?
Mechanically they're sound despite the fact that they've obviously been well used over the years.
Is it still possible to source good quality brake blocks for 80s / 90s brake shoes?
I'd like to fit some decent new friction material into the original brake shoes of my Mavic SSC calipers. The originals are rock hard (fossilised :D ) and therefore useless for a bike that actually gets used...

I'm a bit out of touch with modern components so hopefully someone more up to date can help out with compatibility issues.

There are plenty of options that are marked as 8/9/10 speed.

I initially started this build almost a year ago but due to an illness that affected my balance and dexterity I was unable to continue and had to shelve the project temporarily. I've now recovered sufficiently so, let's try this again.
The starting point is a later model Vitus 979, 56cm frame...
Let's get something straight right off the bat.
You lot are a bad influence! :lol:
Having seen some of the lovely builds on here I decided to indulge myself and build the bike I wanted (but couldn't afford) back when I was racing as a youngster.
First up was tracking down a suitable Vitus...
This is a longshot I'm sure but does anyone have a French thread MAVIC bottom bracket and headset that they'd be willing to trade for the equivalent with standard English thread?
I have the following and am looking for the same with French threads.
Headset-Mavic 305 1" (English)
I've really enjoyed trawling through the rest of the threads so thought I'd post some pics of my own steelframe.
The Frameset is a 1984 Raleigh Corsa bought new by myself. Handbuilt from double butted Reynolds 501 throughout and finished in Oyster. The Blue paint was added after heat was...
