    I think you made an excellent choice. The “Giant built” lugged frames make a great platform for a classic road bike build. The aerodynamic levers look real good. And while I am not a huge fan of white-walls, They do compliment the white tape nicely.

    It was bit risky going with white-walls but at the time my daughters were obsesses with watching Cars and this quote sort of nudged me in that direction.

    “No, no, no! You don’t know what you want! Luigi know what you want. Black-wall tires, they blend into the pavement, but these white-wall tires, they say look at me, here I am, love me.”

    More I think about it, it’s not really my style to be flashy so I may go with more classic look once I get few miles on this thing Just got a Brooks saddle which I will be throwing on there. I’m hoping to use it for a century ride once weather clears up here in Chicago.

    I have the exact same bike that i purchased new in 1985 for about $250. It needs a ton of work, and I don’t really have the facilities to do it myself. I am trying to decide whether to pay somebody to fix it up, or buy a new bike. Any advice?
