This was a fun project, but the frame is just a little too small for me.
- upgraded wheels (which were damaged beyond repair)
- replaced 1-piece crank with loose-bearing spindle BB and (beautiful!), vintage Shimano Golden Arrow (105) cranks
- ditched front derailleur
- replaced ~14-38t cassette with NOS ~14-22 (in gold color!); Suntour? Shimano?
- replaced drop bars with OrangeVelo Porteur (but I don't really like these)
- replaced Twin Stik with vintage Suntour thumb shifter
- replaced old, heavy, worn original saddle with vintage Brooks
- did some amateurish paint touch-up
