1969 Paramount Pugnat Lugs

I have had this frame for quite awhile - don't gasp it's been professionally spread to 130 in the back and became my rain bike with Campy ergo 8 speed
triple. The chrome is in amazing condition and the fork is to - probaly need some new paint, but again it's my rain bike. I have a new Cinelli project and I am planning to move the paramount's groupo over to - it just needs an italian bottom bracket and some short reach brakes.

So here's my delima, can the paramount be set up with Nitto rounder handle bars. I bougth some 9 speed durace barend shifters and I hve some new diacomp road levers which have to be match up to some Suntour vintage long reach side pulls because that what I had to get convert from 27 inch wheels to 700 c. Or is all of this just to much hassel and I should just stick to rtoad bars because I know it will work.

whilst you have it apart, pour linseed oil or framesaver into the tubes to keep that nasty northwest weather from destroying it...
