Not sure how easy a match for Royal Platinum would be.

Putting it back as original as possible is going to be easy. Ordered a new chain, tires, cables etc. Going to try and find hoods for the Shimano 600 levers as they were nearly dust. I’m fighting the urge to put some spare aero levers on it.

I was not impressed with the frame color at first. The amount of crud on it had a lot to do with it. But with initial cleaning and polishing the Royal Platinum and gold head is actually nice looking.

I will try to post some before and after photos.

Thanks for your comments.
