Ooooo. Nice!

Maybe I have coined a new technical bike term!

Yeah, against my better judgment I thought I would try it out for the gravel possibility.

Check out the “headbadge” I am left with!

As Andy said, mine is a 1974. He might be wrong, though. I have fenders and 32mm tires, and there is room for a little more, I don't know how much. I'll take a look when I get a chance.

3x10 drivetrain
dynamo front hub, headlight and taillight
battery taillight, too
commuter pedals
fenders
rack & basket
modern handlebars with stem adapter
Brooks Cambium saddle
Tektro brakes (which are great)
Continental GP5000 tires which are great but may not be durable

FYI, mine takes 35mm 700c, and I could also manage mud guards.

If there were only a way to fit fatter tires with smaller diameter wheels and long-reach brakes.

Haha! 33-35 is plenty large enough for me. Probably use some Mafac or something.

I'm very happy with Tektro dual pivot calipers. They leave me wanting nothing. In fact, I think I like them better than MAFAC Racers. Notice that I mounted the rear one in front of the seat stays so the cable stop on the caliper is on the same side as the one on the frame. It looks weird but works fine.

They do have a goodly amount of clearance as side pulls go, and though slightly flexy, overall have the dual pivot goodness.

I stand corrected. I haven't seen that one in a while, when did you add the rear basket? I like!

Mercifully, neither bottom bracket nor seatpost was particularly problematic...

However...



Bottom bracket needing a good cleaning and has its requisite wasp buddy (which may or may not contain dinosaur DNA). Of course, another Campy English bottom bracket to add to the five other I do NOT need.

Someone had an interesting take on lightening the seatpost. Wedge cutoff and drillium. That will be offered up to someone who does not need took much length.
