Just finished this today, I also have the original matching front and rear Cannondale panniers. I still need to experiment with the gearing, 26t might not be small enough. A couple rides will tell.

That is a very nice looking bike.

If your handlebar can hit the pump when you park it, you might want to add a velcro strap. I do that on the two bikes I have that have frame fit pumps.

If you decide to add a mud flap to the front fender, Folgers coffee container lids work well for that, it is black and quite flexible, although small. I have used that on a few bikes.

Looks like the twist grip shifters were not your preferred option.

I think you will be happy with that bike.

If you aren't happy with the front rack, I'm sure it wouldn't be hard finding a vintage Blackburn with the hoop, I've kept mine for a maybe future project.

And yes, your bike still looks vey nice

Super nice. I love that color scheme. I ended up tucking the pump behind the seat tube because the ST400 my wife rides often goes on the car carrier. Probably would be less work to remove it from under where you have it before loading than tucking it between the seat tube and fenders where I do though.

The ST1000 is one of the best touring bikes from that era. Great bike! Good call on the 24t. I just changed to a 24t on my touring rig and it is just the right low gear climbs in my neck of the woods. A 22t justifies walking, I think! Only had a 22t on a mountain bike and found it super low in the 32t rear. Never used in that sprocket much.
