Ye olde Gravel Grinder

Bought this 1980 DBS with DA EX last winter. Put on some cheap wheels and a set of 28mm Kenda Kwik-Roller tires. I believe the tubing is Aelle R and the bike is a lot slower than my other roadbikes and and feels "sluggish" on tarmac.
However on hardpack gravel it is quite another bike. Had some great rides this weekend on hardpack fireroads and this was a very good bike for those conditions! Soaked up the smaller bumps and felt fast and cornered very well.
