Changing from the original 27 wheels to 700c opens up lots of tire options as Im sure youre well aware. Currently running 32c Compass Stampede Pass Extralights on the Cresta and couldnt be happier.

Really nice looking bike you got there! Id go brown saddle and bar tape, maybe Brooks B17 with matching tape.
Probably just be easier to try to find a nice NOS 36h SunTour rear hub and go from there.

A B17 with matching tape would definitely look nice on there, but the price for those two items would come close to what I paid for the bike. I think Ill just see how my son gets along with the saddle thats on there for now.
