Classic Royale

Interesting frame, unearthed from behind an apartment building, where it had apparently sat for a dozen years. It was fully overgrown with vegetation, and harbored three distinct species of spider.
Frame was cleaned, rust removed, wet-sanded with 1200 and clear coated.
Built up with mostly first generation Dura Ace, plus Chris King headset, Nitto bars, DT Swiss RR 1.1 rims on Dura Ace hubs. First generation Dura Ace center pull brakes with v-brake pads, makes for true 1 finger braking. Drilled the stem for the center pull front brake cable. It’s a sweet ride.
