So now you have my suggestion.
Rock on.
Keep in mind that this is how I got the bike (although I immediately removed the reflector from the seat post bolt and inflated the tires). If this bike becomes one of my two “riders”, I will likely swap the Dura-Ace 8-speed group on my Miyata Pro to the Ironman. I agree with the black parts, too, but we’ll see how things shake out. It appears that the non-original parts are the rear wheel, the seat, the cables, bar tape, and the pedals. I’d love to tear into this project immediately, but I need to get my 1974 Raleigh International project painted and sanded before it gets too cold here to do that stuff.
