They're here! Just arrive in the post a few minutes go! My Campagnolo Clipless Pedals!





I'll be cleaning them up, then filing off those unsightly mold lines and then polishing them to a high luster. They'll look as good if not better than my Exage clipless pedals I did that to. Here's an image of the Exage clipless pedal after i finished with it.



Cheers

Have to give a plug for an ebayer...if he's on here, he'll know.

Ordered a pair of tri-color 6403 brake levers. Was sent a mismatch pair with one lever 6403, one like an Exage type cheaper SLR one (BR L331). Guy sent me the correct lever and the other matching cheaper lever. I asked if he wanted me to send back the Exage guys and he told me to keep him. He'll get my business again.

Now have two extras after getting a pair of Tektros in Brewsmith's Dura Ace bundle...

The bike was supposed to be a rat-rod!!! I need to stop myself!

Got scammed! Freewheel that said it was French threaded in the description comes to me and screws freely right onto a BSA/ISO hub. Further tests with thread gauges confirm it. ARGH!! <wearily opens a complaint case on Ebay>

Nothing as glamorous as those hubs... But happy making all the same. Suntour GPX calipers with the hidden springsCheap, and techie. I have another set that I've been using on a Serotta Colorado Legend with DT index shifting, running smoother than when I bought them.

Various bits and pieces for a Sturmey Archer hub + bottom bracket and chain.
Unfortunately I didn't pay attention and I ordered a 3/32 singlespeed chain instead of 1/8 size that I needed...

The small paddle shifters on my 7800 have been giving me a hard time for the past 2 years. Theyd only shift if I pushed at a certain angle. I bought these to prepare for full implosion.

I already swapped the nameplates so the replacements have the better looking ones.
