It's got a mish-mash of parts on her:
Suntour Superbe Pro shifters, rear derailleur & hubs;
Suntour Sprint Crank
Shimano 600EX front derailleur, BB & headset
MKS Sylvan pedals
ITM bar & stem
Mavic MA2 rims
Torelli Torino tires
Dia Compe Royal Gran Compe brakeset
I haven't ridden it for even a shakedown yet. That will be tomorrow.
She sure is pretty, though!
I got this from a friend of mine that said he bought the frameset in late '85 or early '86, and hadn't ridden it since mid '86. It originally had a complete 600EX (not Arabesque) gruppo with Biopace rings, but the crank arms are 175mm (a bit long for a smaller frame and me), so I took that off and then started swapping away... hence the mish-mash.
Oh, I traded him a gun for it. I'm to the point in my life where I don't think I'll need a small arsenal anymore, and would rather have bikes!
