My recent build. Refurbished and built up with full Shimano 600 tri colour. I’m thinking a new post and saddle may be needed. And I have been told the decal on the top tube is not in the right place.

^ Nice. Is that Leggaro of Ken Evans fame?

Black Concor Supercorsa would work nicely.

Ah yeah, I see what you mean: https://www.instagram.com/p/BF2nsCPiwZW/?tagged=leggaro

Thanks for the link, I should have loooked for those photos a few days ago.
Yes, it’s a ken Evans leggaro. Pantographed seatstays, not sure what tubing it is though.
I will have a look for a concor.

^ You could try contacting Ken if you have a serial number he could look up.

Just picked up this little beauty I'm looking forward to learning about. First retro ride, no brifters is intimidating.

Nice looking bike Milpool, I think you'll find the aero mount dt sticks are awesome, and you'll get used to them very quickly. Haven't used the Shimano 600s in a while, but have some SunTour Symmetric which mount similarly.

Thanks 10speed, I took it for a quick lap after work, they will take some getting used to but it's fun. I would like some regular pedals first, make it stop a bit better, probably redo the bar tape, then some new tyres down the track but it already feels nicer than the borrowed entry level Azzuri thing I was riding, nice and smooth.

From my googling I think it's a re-badged Miyata 912. Here's some pictures from today;

Definitely a Miyata, not a Geoff-built Clamont. Still a very nice ride.

Check your handlebars. That RHS drop is bent inwards. It's not just the angle of the photos, I don't believe. Replacement bars are cheap.

+1, new handlebars need to be right up near the top of the to do list.
