I picked this up about three weeks ago. My first C&V. The weather hasn't really cooperated so I've just had time to clean a little. The drive train was gunked up pretty bad but cleaned up pretty well I think. I cleaned it as much as I could without a complete disassemble. Other than a quick wash and the removal of a stubborn STP sticker, that's all I've done. The main parts look to be original, except the saddle of course. Not sure about the pedals but they look like they could be. Took a short ride this week end and I really like it. I need to replace the chain, the nasty old bar tape, the faded red to pink brake cables, and the lever hoods (one missing). I would appreciate any input.
Chain: KMC chains or other suggestions?
Bar Tape: What materials and brands do ya'll like? I'm not sure what color I want to go with. I thinking about a Brooks saddle in either black or antique brown. I need to find one local to look at and decide on the color.
Brake cables: Quality DIY kits?
Lever hoods: Which brands fit well on the 600 levers?
