OK, here goes:

Wheelset: Roval w/OMAS Ti quick release Crankset: Stronglight 105bis with Stronglight Ti spindled sealed bearing BB (Stronglight 107 would be a bit more period correct but is Campagnolo NR/SR looking so let's stick with the 105) Saddle: Drilled leather Unicanator style - who made these?
