Current Stage Info:

After winter, I will change out the saddle and seatpost. Preferably something brown and offset, respectively.

No, I don't. I can see if I still have the box the bottom bracket came in.

I'd love to, but there's really no better way to always have my lock on hand. I keep my chain lock in my bag, but for short trips it's always there. However, in future 'pretty pics' I'll remove it :D

just get one of those belt locks. that way you have a good chain lock and its very "hipster". either way, keep up the restoration of nice bikes.
