Cool! I will be building up my 74 International this fall. Same colour. Not the same components!

Thanks for the video. Moved along at a good pace.

Great....I'd hoped that I had finally gotten through all of the bike restoration channels on YouTube and could actually be productive in my evenings again.

Oh well, *grabs drink, grabs cat, settles into couch* Man's gotta do what a man's gotta do.

I didn't get angry when you ran your cables in front of your handlebars. Now I did feel a slight murderous rage coming on seeing you mix 3 different colors of cable housing though

Anyways- I just want to say, your videos are way more watchable when you leave the camera on the tripod, instead of walking around with a hand-held camera.

Excellent video, great job. Not shaky and nice shooting angle and close enough where we can see the details well. Great collection of bikes !

These videos are not monetized.

So what's your beef with me posting a video?

Just curious

Please advise.

Thanks. working in making better vids. Im a complete untrained novice. I only have two colors for housing. I already changed the black to white. I was in the middle of the video when I realized I didnt have enough white casing. Youd be surprised that None of my local bike shops had white casing. CRazy!

Maybe the best video I've seen of yours.

If I had to reach for criticisms of the build ... if your stem height is correct, I'd say your brake cables are way too long. And I think you could pretty easily wrap the tape with the levers in place. You don't have to fold the hoods. You can disguise the aluminum this way with the tape without the need to use enamel or whatever you alluded to.

I cringe a little when I see folks use a wrench on Campy clamp and cable anchor bolts. A 5/16" socket driver does the job much easier with no fear of stripping threads.

That bike is in great condition; nice find once again.
The dirt in that brake lever is probably from a mud wasp, or mud dauber, if it was previously stored in a garage.

@jjhabbs, you might not be interested in monetizing what you're posting, but YouTube certainly is, hence the "sponsored" videos and whatnot that show up on my screen. That said, it's easy for me to ignore. I enjoyed this video! I appreciate your sense of humor and attention to detail.

Hi,
I ask people to subscribe for the same reasons everyone else does. To build a channel. Plus they will be notified when new ones come out. I have enough subscribers and enough watch hours to monitize. I just havent. I thought about it but If i did I would let everyone know and donate any proceeds. Not that there would be much. I only have 1650 subs..

Thanks!

JJ

HI
Even though Im not monetizing they put an ad in the beginning. It pisses me off. I thought about monetizing because I think it would push me up on the searches. Id give away all the proceed even though it wouldnt be much. I dont need the money. I do this for fun and I want to build a community. I mention bike forums alot in my past vids. Trying to drive some traffic here.

Thanks

JJ

Hi,
You may read this twice but Im responding to you so you see it. I have enough subscribers and watch hours (1000 subs and 4000 watch hours) to monetize. I haven't decided if I will or not. I do not need the money. If I do I'll donate all of it. The only reason I would is because its my belief that they will push me up on the searches if I do. I do this to help build a community. This is a lonely hobby and I love hearing from others that are into it as I am. Even though nobody likes the way I run my brake cables..lol..
