How do you like those cane creek / tektro brake levers? I've got the same ones with the silver levers and don't think I'd use anything else unless if I could help it.
The Crane Creeks work great. Could not be more pleased for the money. I never thought I would get the bike finished but I have to say I had a blast working on it. Everyone who is into biking should do one. The only downside is that it cuts into riding time. Next project will be done over the winter.
Also I still have the original fork, HB, & other components if anyone is interested. This is a 49cm frame so the headset is short.
Also anyone care to comment on painting the rear stays, black? I bought this bike in 1984 and it sat in my garage for 14 years so there was some rust. I could not get a match on the oricinal paint so I stripped it and did a gloss black with a clear coat. I spent 6 hours at my local auto parts store trying to match the paint. No luck. With mfgs. such as Centurion out of biz, paint & decals are a problem.
