Putting together a 70's Motobecane Grand Touring. Learned how to build wheels! Well, rebuild wheels....stole a set off my wifes old trek. Repainted frame, replaced bearings in headset, overhauled bottom bracket, put new cranks on (filed down the inside edge of one dura-ace crank...kept rubbing on BB locknut).

Getting there on it. Need to pick up a bunch of cable/housing, bar tape, and put the rest of it back together.
