Love this bike. does it take a modern 700c u-brake and wheels? I have mine fitted with 27" wheels and was planning to get a 700c. Nice modification you have there.

lucky you. it's a stock component (original u-brake) & it's long reach. so when i put 700c wheels no need to take a modern 700c u-brake.
i think that's okay if you want to upgrade with the modern parts but remains on the classic theme.
the bad news is this nova has new owner. ;(

Love this bike. I just acquired one. I was wondering if I should change parts or keep it original. I love how you mod this bike though.

so, that is a 76? The frame graphic and lettering is stock? Very modern looking for a 76.
