    Here's a QR lever I found down at the local tip:

    I rebuilt the bike to its former glory, no expense spared:

    Very nice bike Maz.

    Surprisingly long chainstays, though. I wonder who threw a mavic skewer in the skip? ;)

    Very nice Maz, very nice indeed ;):biggrin::biggrin:
    I hope you're rightfully proud that you've given that QR a new lease of life....shame it cost £1000 to do it (probably):biggrin:

    Need to get back down the tip and find some pedals so you can ride it!

    Yeah I know. I really wanted to find some Shimano Ultegras to complete the look. Unfortunately, all I could find in the scrap metal skip was a pair of Shimano PD520s and PD540s. The search continues...:biggrin:

    Doh! ;)
  7. I've got a pair of vintage Campagnolo drop-outs which need a bit of a furtle do bring them back up to a Pinarrelo frame with 50th anniversary Super Record if you've got a spare half an hour sometime. I'll buy you a pint and that.
