Had this for a couple of months, purchased off ebay off the original owner and slowly swapped out a few parts. I’m now pretty happy with where things are at (except grips situation and gear/lever placement which needs to be dialled a little). Planning on doing an overnighter or two, hopefully with my eldest son in tow, ‘dallimor style’. Sorry for average pic. Couple more pics on my insta @ajnewton.
58cm-ish Hillman frame (with my fave era decals), unknown tubing but has Campagnolo rear dropouts
Suntour barcon shifters as ‘thumbies’
Suntour Compe V FD
Suntour VX RD
No name levers, older Shimano 600 brakes
Shine(?) hubs laced to Araya rims (27 inch) 32c Zaffiro rubber
Cinelli stem, Abbotsford cycles bars, regular cork bar tape until I work out what I want
Brooks B17 saddle, no name post
Stronglight triple, MKS GR-9 pedals with MKS clips and Brooks single straps
Topeak rear rack which came with the bike, found a couple of old style Roman panniers on Gumtree that I think suit the bike
Came with fenders but I’m yet to fit them
Rides really well, panniers and rack are silent (was concerned after hearing awful set ups daily on my commute), brakes modulate speed slightly, inner ring on the triple should get me up anything.
