This is my daily rider. Had to ebay/restore the rear Weinmann concave rim and 126mm rear since the previous owner decided for some strange reason to replace them with some weird modern components. Other than that it has the original full Campy Nuovo Gran Sport parts including unusual three arm crankset. The original Brooks Professional seat was missing so it's been replaced with a nicely broken in B-17 with Acorn two strap roll bag. For night time riding, I converted an old Schwinn Union bullet light retro fitted with a battery powered LED for the front light while the rear has a Planet Bike Superflash screwed into the old reflector mount. Brakes are Kool Stop salmon low profile mountain pads and the tires are white Vittoria Randonneurs 32mm 700c. The original stem was a bit low so that was replaced by a tall Nitto Technomic stem. Grips are inexpensive gel cork with amber shellac. The last addition was a cheap Pyramid frame pump. Overall, a nice vintage ride.
