I had high hopes for some feedback on this. It's such a rare bird, even the UK EBay provides little insight. Would more/better pictures be helpful? And, honestly, I took the most conservative path to this project and would enjoy a more comprehensive restoration this winter. I just hesitated to do anything irreversible in case the preserved version is more appealing to someone who loves an English 3-speed or a pre-Holdsworthy Claud Butler.

I took the bike for a ride this afternoon and enjoyed it ... those aluminum components work together to make a soft ride.
