Rich- your pictures make me jealous.  I am waiting for the snow to melt here to take my 1975 X-100 out.  I have made some changes like dropping the top chainring from 52T to 47T for half-step gearing.  I had been looking for a black 1970's Dura Ace ring for a LONG time and finally found one (would prefer a 46T, but still have not found one of those).  I also changed the rear rack to more of a french set-up with a handlebar bag and generator lighting.  I finally gave up on the tubulars and relaced the hubs to an old set of Rigida's found in the basement of a LBS.

Here it is in last year's form:

I intend on taking pictures of the "new and improved" verson once the temps get above 30 degrees on a regular basis.
