Great score, including the bolted instead of riveted together earlier? chainrings, not that you can find other rings easily but still cool to me.

In 2016 I bought one in the same condition. 1977 and only ridden a couple of times. The original owner who I bought it from got it from a Cupertino bike shop for his wife and she hated it so it sat in their garage until the day I bought it. They are wonderful bikes and quite light . Like yours I changed the original GS rear derailleur to NR but left the rest pretty much in original condition.

I have the brake hoods but have not installed them. Ive been riding it for over five years off and on.

That is a fantastic bicycle. Mine rode so well and was so fast and so perfectly aligned that when the buyer agreed with me, I almost raised the price. Looking at yours makes me wish I was a collector.
