This is looking good, love the choice of gruppo. Don't stress about the frame size being a little to big as geometry also plays a big part. I found this with my T.I. Replica that I thought was going to be to big but it is a comfortable ride even over 50+ milers. Look forward to the build. Had you also considered Suze hubs?I believe they became rebranded as Sun-tour.

Suzue hubs were a good choice for training wheels, mine were :). They just didn't have the quality of genuine Superbe.

Good luck finding a matching bottom bracket! I gave up with mine and used a shimano after a 'like new' axle turned from the States well worn out. The bolts were just plain Sugino. I never found the crank dustcaps but looks like you're sorted :D

That's Sansin/Sunshine rather than Suzue. The Superbe hubs were slightly remodelled versions of the Sunshine Pro-Am.

I've come across a couple! But I have decided to use my sealed Tange Seiki LN-7922 - it's very well built, very light and smooth as Cindy Crawford!
