classy bike! red colour is a beauty!
sorry but an advice: you should think of changing the splash bar tape with a non-splash one, maybe a lizard skin black one...

Hi Man.
You have so good bike.
So...slim pipe frame.

Well. I saw your brake bar.
Looks like greaspot in brake handle.
What is this?

Not sure what you see but chances are if it looks like grease,it could be grease. It gets ridden a LOT and the oldies seem to get dirtier than the newer rides.Thanks.

Old and fast but like you say,delicate. No rushing the shifts or skidding with those old brakes.
