The bike is NR with english thread campy hubs and I would like the large cog to be a 28 and the small one 13 or 14.
You might check with Pastor Bob in New Hampshire. He runs a little side business The Freewheel Spa and is very fair . He may have what you are looking for or could build you one. He is a regular here on bike forums. Joe joesvintageroadbikes.wordpress
