Frame all clean

All cleaned up and roadworthy, but not yet final. Low mileage drivetrain moved over from my previous Univega, including Suntour 14-32 freewheel and Sakae CX triple (vs. the Aerox crankset that came mounted). Brooks saddle, temporary bars, Superbe levers. Wheels are Mavic clinchers laced to Sunshine Gyromaster.

It came with a short cage Cyclone MKII, but I added a GT version I recently overhauled and had in the parts bin. Matching front derailleur was in great shape, just needed cleaning. Also came with the "good" Laprade seat post, with the alloy mounting bits at the top.

Original AGC 300 brakes are in excellent shape, but I will likely replace them with a set of Superbe brakes I have that match the levers I mounted.

And what really sealed the deal -- the hat and vintage gloves fit!
