Anyone interested in staying tuned to my rebuild of 92 Eddy Merckx Century? Sweet bike that's seen some miles and needs some loving. It found the right home... Here's a few blurry pics of the bike after I got it and after a 50% break down. Going with new wires, brakes, Campy headset to replace the blown original Dura-Ace 7400 (dented race, rusty bearings, cant find a NOS), new chain, bar wrap, polish and clear coat over the various paint scars, and a deep cleaning of removed components.
Things that may wait are replacement of the 10 spd 7400 series original dura-ace shifters which function but are super sloppy due to age and wear, and the 7400 series BB which has some slight catches. Let me know if you have any recommendations to these regards.
To me a 92 just breaks the cusp of vintage steel, but let me know if I should be posting somewhere else.
