What are you going to do with the bike? Convert to road riding? That would make a good crit bike after adding some STI shifters.
thanks. first I have a ton of cleaning to do . This was the dirtiest bike I ever purchased. You cannot see that so much in the pictures. I cannot wait to get rid of those handlebars. I want to convert it back to road bike handlbar for sure. I would like to put on period corect dura ace stem/ handlebar if possible and if not too much $That way it would match the other components. I believe the original groupset was dura ace but have not found a lot of info on that.I read it was available in several different groupets such as ultegra , campy , dura ace etc. But not sure. I hope I can get the bottom bracket out and replace
