My Turbo came to me as a frame only, so I attempted to rebuild it with OEM parts. At that time, Suntour Superbe Pro stuff was expensive and hard to find. I met a guy with a complete group, offered $300, and he wouldn't part with it. In the end, I built it with a Shimano 600 tricolor group, including wheels, and added RSX 7-sp STI shifters. It was too big, so I eventually sold the frame to one person, the group to another.

You have an advantage in that you already have some of the pieces. Since the original wheels did not include Suntour hubs, I'd recommend finding a nice set of wheels featuring Shimano 600 hubs or better, if you can't find the bronze anodized Suzue set. The other Suntour parts can be found a bit easier. I'd probably let Chicago Al be your guide as to what actually came on the bike.

I've been trying hard to shrink him 2" so I can buy his bike, but nothing's worked yet.
