Today was another day of progress, with cranks, rear derailleur and “BLACK TYRES” fitted

Stole it I did
Pulled the headset apart and will use it until I can get a period correct item fitted. Looking at a nos XT unit at the moment.
I did find the left shifter mounting bolt is stripped where the unit mounts to the bars so I may need to locate one of those as well.

I have some nicer XT canti’s coming from the USA also
Unsure whether to use white or black outer casings for the cables. Will probably go white if I pick up a white seat and black if I get a black seat.
