Just realized a couple of the pics were crappy "before" ones, swapped them out for "after".

This cleaned up very well for the for the time and scars it has endured IMO.

This one is a little rough. Couple of C&V representative items of some interest to me.
!,. these are the index shifters used on about 3+ groups including Superbe Pro.
2. The calipers are the Hidden Spring model and work extremenly well.
3. The replacement fork is from the following year, 1985 but the same as the frame set from 1984. The frame is straight as checked by an 18" steel rule.
4. Reynolds 531, of course!
5. The nearly ever-present Record headset - If you run into a Superbe Pro HS, I might be interested. Then I would need a stem (now Cinelli) and post (Now American Classic)!
