    Got mine today, and like my bronse busing. I'll definitely keep it. Factory issue mistakes are always more valued in the future ;)

    What do I get for winning?

    And as for the octagram BB cutout, you know we need a picture, for posterity's sake.

    With that many spokes I wouldn't worry about it much.

    I do have a wheelset that had one side on the rear like that, and I did break a few spokes at the nipple. (One at a time) But it was a 24...

    Yes, and they usually run $40 and up, when you can find them. Model SM-PD64

    I never really noticed any difference between these and the SPD-SLs I use on the road. Are you using the right Look cleats? I don't even know if Deltas would fit, as I've only had the Arcs.

    Was using them on the trainer. Cleats still easy to find. Good match for my Guerc f&f I need to sell.

    I'll just make it over 100mi this month with a short (20-30) ride this weekend, if I'm just counting the outdoor miles. No commuting here - I'd be the hospital or worse due to a couple nasty no...

    This is the worst I've painted - I was kind of worried about it, but it's ridden over some terrible roads without issue.

    Like you, PB, I ride this way. But it still gives me shudders to think I took this picture without the proper ones.

    The 1984 Trek 760 was factory stock 7 speed, so even earlier than your date.

    I'm using a Sakae CX and an SX on two bikes, both 110BCD and from the 80's. You'd probably need to swap the BB for a longer one, too. Sakae made a bunch of 110 models. See velobase

    Why does this bike have a bare RD cable and a housed FD cable? I can see that it makes it work, but I've never seen cables cross like yours in pic3.

    Your bare cable to the FD should run/rub over...

    Yes, they definitely screwed up by posting the '87 date.

    The concept is that you'll be riding like they did back before the majority of bike races were on paved roads.

    If you're trying to reuse the spokes, you'll need a hub with the same (or pretty close) dimensions as the one you're replacing. Since you're on the front, you'll primarily be interested in the spoke...

    Budgeted $1.00/mi, but expect that that was low. So $80k+ spent to bike for a year.

    1982 PV10E with a 60cm ST. Actually, at least on the US '82's, the shifters were the newer style. So this may fit in the '80-'81 time slot.

    Not sure this model was a US model, I don't recall...

    In '82, I think the fork and stays were Ishiwata, but I'd have to check the catalog. IIRC my '83 is Tange f&s.

    EDIT: see T-Mar's below

    You have to think of 531CS as a "tubeset", not just a tubing designation.

    As far as the 531C, the C came about when Reynolds morphed their designations from (their...

    I have no idea. Even Sheldon Brown's info is hazy. In my web searches I've not run across any Italvegas that were definitely dated by an original owner to 1977, but that's not really definitive.
