I have now rebuilt the bike and installed new brake and shifter cables (my GOD are Shimano ones expensive) as well as handlebar tape and KMC chain. I don't have wire cutters so it's going back in to Pinarello today and will hopefully (pray for me) be ready for the weekend.
I will post photos, eventually.
One question - anyone restored Shimano levers with sandpaper or polish? These have had a hard life and the finish is, well, shit.
