This won't be popular with some folks but I don't plan on restoring "Groovy". I like the way it looks. What I would like is for it to ride well, shift well, stop well.
I have a set of gold Ukai 700c wheels from an old Fuji, I've already installed the Truvativ Am-Eur BMX converter because I like the square tapered cranksets that are available. I have Shimano Xage 300 LX f&r derailleurs but don't like how they look on the bike. Also have a Deore crankset (I have the other rings) Just bought NOS Suntour VX rear derailleur and have two Suntour front derailleurs I'm considering and stem-mount shifters. I'm new at this will certainly make mistakes along the way. But that's part of the learning process.
I am appreciative of all of the combined experience and wisdom the CABE offers to us nubes.
