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.

I picked this up a few weeks back with the intent of path racerifying it - but its too nice, so it got some white tyres, and a saddlebag, and i'm loving it. So is Mrs 2Shoes, to the point where she's decided it's hers....

i subsequenty picked up an odd old indian thing to path racerify, the twin tubes and the geometry were perfect.
This is when I got it, it's been stripped to individual bits, vintage stem and bars, leather saddle, 700c rims with white tyres, just need to weld something between the forks to mount sidepull brakes and i can put it back together - got a coat of paint on it today .
Will post more as it develops.
