Unknown

Pedals:
Wellgo, with Avenir Clips and Straps

Drivetrain/Cog/Chainring/Chain:
46t-17t/Novatec 17t/Unknown/KMC

Handlebars/Stem:
Unknown Riser with Bianchi Bartape/ALPS 50mm Stem

Saddle/Seatpost:
Unknown Saddle with Suede Cover/Unknown

Front Wheel/Hub/Tire:
Araya TX-733/Novatec/Continental Ultra Sport 700x25c

Rear Wheel/Hub/Tire:

More Info:
I want to add a porteur front rack, and maybe repaint it later. I'll keep updating my modification i've been made in this post.

You might want to paint it just so it doesnt rust to shit.
Or I'd say to just sandpaper back the majority of the rust, and then clear coat?
