The Hartley out on it's maiden voyage after complete refurbishment, it rode like a dream,
no wonder I'm smiling.
The one thing I find of regret, is relacing the wheelset with stainless steel spokes, I mean they look nice and shiny and everything, and it's almost impossible not to be tempted to go this way, we all love shiny things after all.
However probably more than half the bikes I have come across in New Zealand from this period originally had galvanized spokes, and in a way I can see now how they would have suited the look of the Hartley more...oh well, next time.

CLB High-Life calipers, some of my favorites.
