Same size on the 760 but takes a 2.5 mm allen. Look like replacement bolts.
M3 did the trick, I used a tap to clean up the threads and they fit just right. Thanks for the information!

1983 760 new paint

Just got my 1983 760 powdercoated to deal with some rust, also got a small dent fixed and new cable guides before painting. I upgraded most components previously, it has 2000-era Shimano 9-speed parts. Still a great ride! It was too difficult to find a powdercoat color to match the original, so I chose Illusion Copper Plus from Prismatic.

Nicely done! It screams out for that white tape/saddle.
