I looked around but saw no forum that highlighted restorations. My professional business is restoration so I decided to take my father in laws old ROSS and give it new life. But this thread is not yet about a finished product but my shock at the weight of some of the components. The frame,,, 10Lb 8 Oz.. Ok, no big shock there.
But the wheels, and the rear foremost. 12 Lbs! The front 6 Lbs.
The cluster & brakes, Derailleurs, chain bars and cables, yada yada 8 Lbs...
WOW what a tank!!!!!!
I'm going to media blast it here in the shop and start to hunt for newer components and see what we can get the weight down to. As for paint, I like white and some accent colour. Maybe a fogging 2 tone like many of the 80's bikes had. Should be fun and make for a fun ride & project when all over.
