Building an '76 Eisentraut for loaded touring, and need the following...
  • panniers - should work well mounted low on f/r Nitto Campee racks.
  • saddle bag - must be at least "vintage" in vibe, Ostrich to match my handlebar bag would be great!
  • front derailleur - to match well with a Vx Luxe, and that could handle more than 18T drop on a half-step triple Cyclotouriste
  • Suntour stainless cable housing - for bar end shifters
  • non-aero hoods - to fit early Superbe levers
  • pads/shoes - to fit early Superbe calipers
  • bell - brass or copper (Crane or... ?)
  • Spécialités TA - metal dust caps

Also need a few bits to complete my list for a separate 1981 custom frame build...
  • leather toe straps - black, red, white or natural (Cinelli, Campy, Ale, or... ?)
  • toe strap buttons - branding to match with straps ^ ^ ^
  • Cinelli bar end plugs - winged logo or otherwise, black, red, or white
  • Columbus SL & Campy decals - appropriate for an early 80's frame
  • Silca Impero pump - black, red, white, or silver, to fit 55 cm c-c top tube, w/ metal Campy pump head
  • pads - for NR/SR brakes
  • lightweight "sporty" vintage saddle bag - to blend well with or compliment a black, white, and red colour theme


I can buy, or trade. Some items I have on hand to offer in trading are:

Superbe short reach calipers & levers, Gran Compe areo levers, Tricolor hubs, other various hubs, MA2 Mavic 36h rims, Matrix 700c Sonic anodised rims, other various rims (pairs, and orphans), freewheels, brand new in box never used contemporary Dia Compe GC610 centerpull brakes, 1984 53 cm Trek 520 frame & fork, other 70's frames in 56 to 57 cm (French, Japanese, British), Cinelli 1A 120 mm stem, SR Custom stem & bars, Et cetera...
