Beautiful work on the paint and chrome. What handlebars are you using? My Impulse is newer, maybe 1989, with a different fork style and I don't think it would fit tires that large.

Might originally have been a custom, not sure, but it fits me nicely. Note the braze-ons for a rack on the seat stays.
Fits 32 Gravel Kings with room to spare (they measure out at 30mm on the Mavic rims); Deore RD could take a larger cog if needed.
I stripped it down to the bare frame and built it up with the components I wanted (and with which am familiar), including better brakes for those Eroica downhills.
