Recently I have been working on my 1968 Fongers-RIH project. Earlier this week I fitted clamp on Campagnolo shifters, guide, pump umbrella and Stronglight bottom bracket (2x 11 loose balls). With a couple more bits fitted it really starts to look like a bike now.
Most of the parts are donated by a small size RIH. Not all: the Stronglight Competition acier cranks and Titan post came from a crashed Germi.
The small size RIH was a couple years younger. Nuovo Record rear mech says Patent 71. Pretty much everything that came from this bike was from Campagnolo's Nuovo Record group, but the hubs are Normandy Luxe Competition examples. Nice hubs.
Many of the original parts of the red RIH couldn't be used anymore. After the bike was retired from racing it served as city bike and it had a traditional Dutch bike cockpit fitted - to give an idea. Hence I decided to set pretty much everything from the small RIH over on the red one.
