Hi folks,

This arrived today,

Now I've worn it home, I can start sorting it out in readiness for the fresh lick of paint I have planned for it! :cool:
Won't be a long thread, as I have all the parts from the Bianchi to put on it.

First job will be removing the mudguard eyes. A few photos for you

Re:

I took it out of the loft.

Been quoted £370 for tube replacement and re-spray, so will be a wall hanger now

Re:

Now taken the mudguard bosses off, next issue is brake fitting. They're not recessed on the frameset. Can they be drilled out? Easy on the forks, but access for the rear one is restricted by the seat tube.

Oh, and no bottle cage bosses, which is odd.

Not sure of year. 18831, May contact the factory about that

Dremel do a right angled drill attachment for the rear if you have a Dremel, you can also get attachments or flexible drives for an ordinary drill. Steady hand needed :)
