Drilling fork for recessed brake mount & swapping front to nutted rear.
Then a parts hunt - from clamp on FD BB guide, to clamp-on brake cable guides,
I believe all pieces have been gathered, even with alternative black/silver options for headset & seatpost.

The Draw for me to this frame is:
A. 1st Dutchie,
B. Ishiwata 022 (enough Reynolds&Columbus),
C. a paler shade of Orange. -appropriate for a mellow low country rider

Will also be my first vintage frame with Ergo instead of DT shifters.
Damn, and I came so close to having you forget it was hanging in my shop. I could image you halfway home, ringing me up and me saying "frame, what frame?"
If someone tells you that you have enough bicycles and you don't need any more, stop talking to them. You don't need that kind of negativity in your life.
