    ^ Sounds right. They're all good, no complaints. Don't like the aesthetics of the elliptical chainring? Replace, ride on.

    As others have said: score.

    I was entirely serious when I wrote earlier in this thread that I'd be on the PO's doorstep in a jiffy if that bike were local to me.

    Thanks for this - good info to be aware of.

    Not that I don't already, but I'll be sure to treat my SR-equipped '84 Mercian Pro with kid gloves from here on in.

    Geez. I'd be on my way if that was local. Super deal.

    I don't need more bikes, and I'd struggle to scrounge the cash, but for $300 I'd buy it in a heartbeat.

    Nice, subtle paint scheme (not the...

    Fantastic.

    Love the script on the DT. Hand-painted?

    I believe I've seen only one (or two?) Hutsebaut-badged frames *ever*; I recall one catching my eye at Critical Mass in Montréal perhaps 6-8...

    Most significantly:

    - the 540s are listed as 39-51mm, so basically 'short' (or, some might say, 'standard') reach.
    - the 539s are listed as 47-59mm, so basically 'medium' (or, some might say,...

    I recall a thread or post here that mentioned a Mariposa falling into your hands.

    I will be very interested to see both 'before' and 'after'. :thumb:

    The painting is quite weighted with a sad significance as well, despite Curnoe's ability as an artist to invest his subject matter with so much life.

    Like some others here, I'm not sure I have a *singular* 'grail' marque - but I do have certain fixation on Canadian-built bikes ca. 1980s.

    Something about the often less-known marques, local...

    Nice score.

    I like the contrasting panels.

    Davidsons always seem to have impeccable, clean and simple details - look forward to more pics, and the Suntour build.

    Sounds like a great build. Tan wall Clements, nice...and a vote here for the Brooks Pro atop that agile predator.

    Most understated Lanshark paint scheme I've seen yet!

    Love the bike.

    Premier American builder, beautiful bike, and cool to have one where the Max tube set was employed.

    Great shape.

    Iconic paint scheme.

    The 7700 kit makes it pop, and can't be beat.

    Very nice.

    My best guess is that it might be a Nishiki Ultra Tour...not one of their better known models, but it looks to be a very nice bike.

    Glad to see it come together so beautifully after the deliberate acquisition of the appropriate pieces.

    + price is in pounds sterling, not Euro. So 250GBP = 350 Euro...or about 390 USD.

    EDIT: Not to mention pickup only in London, UK.

    Which could make sense. Ca. 1980 bike spec'd with then-current Dura Ace, perhaps?
