Likely 2019 L'Eroica ride: 1983 Davidson. I've always wanted something in that beige-y champagne kinda color.

This one has an interesting back story: found out about it through Charles Nighbor in Sab Francisco, who seems to know pretty much everybody. Robert Freeman did the resto work on the frame and chrome for the former owner, who sadly passed away before it was finished; I purchased it from his wife. It came with an all-Campagnolo drivetrain but not what I wanted to use for this application so installed different components- Sugino Mighty Tour crankset, Deore FD/RD, Tektro braking system, Nitto Noodles on a Nitto Dynamic Stem, Ritchey Corsa saddle & 6207 friction shifters. Those are non-gravel Gravel Kings, sizing out to about 30mm on the Mavic Elite Pro rims.

Yes, an all-UG 8 speed cassette. How did that ever fit on an Ultegra 6700 hub? By swapping out the freehub for an earlier one that accepts both HG and UG cogs...
