That is nice!
I've seen those straps sold at Riv Bikes, called "Power Grips". The same? How do you like em?
So, you squeezed a 135mm in there? What year is your 1000, it looks like there's the extra bottle brazons of a 1985-86. Do you think the model was already spread for 130mm, did you cold-press?
What I don't like about going Shimano 105 or XT for my rear hub, is the divergence, further, from what I enjoy about the reused parts I've salvaged thus far. I like maintaining the open seal components; I like the story of Suntour vs Shimano; I like milled levers. IDK, guess I'm being fussy, but I'd love to find a rear hub that doesn't break that cycle, and still gives me some modern 7-speed gearing options. Like an 11-13 and 32 (I could get schooled here)... To be honest, I've ridden just fine on hand-outs. Now that I'm faced with a new purchase, there's too much to consider. If you handed me a 105 hub, I'd clean it up and use it and be happy for the chance. So, I'll shut-up now.
