My addition to this thread...

1984 460 that a friend found beside the dumpster as someones failed hipster-bike. I have had it in the stable for a few years now, and have been thinking about what to do with it. After spending too much time looking through threads here, seeing what you all have done with vintage steel, I knew I needed to build this bike to ride for hours.

So, I went through the limited parts bin that I have and got some stuff, stalked other components on Ebay and scrounged other deals and came up with this.

9 speed Dia-Compe friction barcons
11-28 Sram cassette
old Shimano Wheels (which I will be replacing)
52-42 Sakae crankset
no name calipers
3T smoked chrome bars

I'll tell you, I am no speed freak at all, but after riding my Touring/CX style modern steel frame with 700x50c tires, this bike feels like a rocket ship. I add in some stiffer wheels and a sealed bearing BB and it will be complete.
