I didn't really want to remove the graphics, more to clean up and refurbish the various parts as they've been sitting unused for a long while. Did a complete strip down, degrease and regrease today, all seems to be working very well.
I have, however, now run into a few issues (not problems, issues). The chainrings are missing their bolts (FC-RE001/002); the front derailleur is missing the mounting bolt (FD-VL102); I need some cable stops/adjusters (any); and the rear recessed brake caliper mounting nut is too long.
