Just though I'd share my recent 80's find, and what I plan to do.
It fits me fine (just need a slightly longer stem), so figured I'll keep it as my 'club racer'. I want to make it operate like new to today's standards which will require many parts replacement, but the down-tube shifting style will be kept!
Painting will be a big part, and possibly 100% stripped an repainted the same color with decals replaced. The metallic trim is actually just silver and gold sharpies, because I wanted to see how it would look if I painted the decal.
Any thoughts? And are their 6-speed SIS down-tube shifters?
