Tech and Restoration / Re: Project Q - Prototype Build
« Last post by Mikku on February 18, 2020, 09:39 AM »
Following on from last monthís post, hereís a February update. Actually, thatís not a bad idea to keep me focussed - post at least one update a month. I like it! :daumenhoch:

Anyway, Iíve been changing up a few things with Project Q! Firstly, Iíve just pulled the plug on some sweet-looking, rawed out Profile cranks, as pictured below. These will replace the rather long 182mm chrome ones that came with the frame and will look great with the raw forks and bars. Plus I managed to pick up a Supercross spider from the same seller which means that I can use the Renthal chainring that was on my Crupi. I love that thing, so am more than happy to use it again for this build! In a similar move, I've decided to re-use the VP platform peds that were also on my Crupi. A pic of both when mounted on the Crupi is below. The NOS Shimano Saints that I bought for the Quamen are, like the FSA sprocket, very nice but Iíve decided to keep the amount of new stuff to a minimum, which I think is more in keeping with the frame. That also means I can try to sell those shiny new parts to recoup some funds! :daumenhoch:

In other news, Iíve also been in touch with Del and hope to have some decals done soon. So no spanner-work to report this month but some progress at least. Or should I say, at last! More next month! :D

Not sure if this helps at all. This is a listing pic of a Tange catalogue I bought on eBay recently. Itís not dated but I think itís pre 1983. Another page lists only the sc-1 seat clamp. Iím sure thereís more catalogue stickies on here too.

Check out this 1983 Tioga catalogue Paul shared
