So many upgrades, it requires a new thread. Here is the bike, found in a skip, refurbished, and now upgraded. All original components have been polished endlessly with Brasso (calipers, levers, wheel, hubs etc).

Please see video below for more information :)

    Great work (and refurbing old road bikes is hard work).

    A very pretty classic bike. Wheels look great. :D

    Very nice, great build. One thing I'd change though would be the brooks saddle. They look and feel horrible in my opinion, stick a flite or a turbo or something on instead!

    Shame your opinion is wrong...

    to the OP: great job, it is a beautiful bike... and now you'll have to convert the carbon bike into a winter ride... 8)

    Hehe :D No carbon in our garage. My main bike is Reynolds 531 (see sig).

    Dad's going to get a cheapish aluminium bike for general riding and keep this for extra special occasions ;)

    Thanks!

    Opinions can't be wrong, that's the whole point of opinions :wink:
