One of our earlier restos & still to this day probably my all time favourite!! When I found the bike it was absolutely hammered. True barn find… Nothing was replaced, not even the chain or cassette. Everything was cleaned & polished using nothing but elbow grease…
Actually we did use a little degreaser, soap, steel wool & a sponge… & a whole lotta time!!)
After cleaning out the inside of the shifters they were still crisp & sharp on the change!
We didn’t touch up the paint at all. The chips were few & far between & it seemed a shame not to keep them as part of the story of the bike.
Probably the only 2 things I’d do differently now is dig out the polish from the grooved & corners with a pointy cloth… & use silver cables!!
Wait… & take better photos
So much Campy & Shimano in the same build 🤯🤯
