More Info:
I restored this bike for My friends Father. He purchased it new and then it was hung in the garage for 44 years. The bike came to me with surface rust on most if not all of the components and chrome. I used every original part except the cables, hoods, wheels, tubes, tires, rim tape, and bar tape. The tubular wheels were miss matched when I got the bike. We decided to go to clinchers. This is an Honest very nice example of a bike of the showroom floor in 1971' She rides beautiful! I was lucky to do this for my friend an know how a period correct bike and parts should ride in 1971'
