    I'm no expert on these but, seller claims all original outside of stem/handlebar. Down tube shifters and aero brakes certainly aren't original. Not sure what else based on limited photos. Would love...

    Mine was a uniform "thickness" throughout, if it is skived, it was slight to the point I don't remember it to be significant. Each roll was a singular roll, wasn't pieced together anywhere. Can't...

    I've also been keeping an eye on it. Will likely end up more than what I'd like to pay for a frame I can't view in person, though. Beautiful.

    Just gives it a larger diameter. No redeeming "padding" qualities to it.

    A thin, single, layer of hockey tape under the cloth tape works best for me. Gives it a little extra something underneath without the bulk.

    I've also spent a ton of time at Groveland Tap.

    Not as cool as some of the bikes in this thread but of all the bikes I've gone through, it's one of my most enjoyable to ride. I've posted it before on this site but I guess not in this thread.

    Yep, Schwinn cage. Had it in the parts bin and mounted it on the downtube to keep it away from the decals. It's the 47 325.

    Nice bike. My '83 620 looks similar and I love the ride. Don't know what I'll end up doing with it though, as it's about a size too small. Hope you enjoy yours!

    Thank you.

    I ordered it as I wanted a friction FD. Regardless of which direction I go down the line, I much prefer friction up front so I can trim. Felt a little weird paying more for that than I...

    I'd say it's hard to be 100% positive if you're going to have clearance for fenders on 27in wheels with the VO fenders. My Grand Jubile cuts it pretty close in some areas, namely at the fork bridge...

    Road, gravel, and cross? I much prefer solo. I like to be on my own at my pace, doing the distance (and any stops) I'm interested in without having to account for other's interests.

    I enjoy riding...
