    not to spoil any deal with me, but here I go: jeirvine has a pair of Superbe calipers, nutted and only $32 for the pair, I'd just buy his and be happy...his ad is right below yours in the Sales...

    If you want to go deeper into Frankenbike territory: how about a set of Modolo Speedy in black finish, complete with black pad holders and matching black levers (non-aero) with decent dark brown gum...

    no idea here, either but i suspect this (early) frame was given those WB bosses (and MAYBE the shifter bosses and TT cable guides) later in life.
    Very nice Brit frame, probably also got the rear...

    Miyata used a very-unusual 26.7 seatpost on some of their frames...might have included some of their contract-built Univegas as well.
    I believe Kalloy offers a 26.6 in both LaPrade style and plain...

    No, usually the race area would be "faced" or scraped of all paint so the crown has just the correct interference fit. A powder-coater who has experience with bike frames will mask and/or plug all...

    ^most likely classic Reynolds blades: they would call it 29x16 but there were slight variances. Columbus blades are more like 28x19.

    Oh yeah^ I see the +GF+ on the shell , now that you point it out...good eye there Mr. Pog!
    So it's a Swiss shell, albeit with Italian threading...still no help to me in solving this mystery!

    as others have said you really don't NEED to use one, most people don't bother cause if the QR is tightened down properly, that axle should NOT slip...but if you feel insecure without one, there is...

    the fork dims I'm referring to are measured at the top of the blades: long and short axis. I'm 90% sure you have Reynolds "Imperial" fork blades but can't recall what Vitus blade dims were (will have...

    I have a complete RD with the slightly "aero" cage (apparently a 990 not 980) and that cage is bent. I bet you can bend it straight with a vise + some care and luck.
    I'll PM you.

    The ID of your shell (not something that looks like it) is what you need to know. AFAIK Thun Thompson shells are 40mm, and Schwinn (probably most other cruisers and BMX shells) are 2.02" so about...

    you only need the part shown in post #2 , there was not anything with 3 holes, those 2 smaller "holes" are just dimples that locate the claw in the dropout slot and keep it centered. Then the "bolt...

    Possibly might be able to use a 3-piece adapter such as might be used on a Schwinn Ashtabula BB shell to allow a square-taper BB and crank. Depends on the dimensions/diameter of the shells. I've...

    might be Belgian (maybe Swiss), don't think it's French with the 26.8 seatpost. Flandria, Libertas, Titan? Just some blind guesses to research...

    not that familiar with "true Confente" details but it sure looks like a nice frame. Is that milled dropout face something Mario did? it looks too "modern" for a '70s frame to my uneducated eye.

    Some Shimano freewheels were 3.3.3. and yeah I bet that SunTour took that as "inspiration" for their "888" stuff.
