Vic Edwards built Condor TT

After a very prolonged restoration, I have 
finally finished rebuilding this beautifully 
constructed Vic Edwards built Condor TT jewel.
Frame No V4571.
Condor advertisement International Cycle Sport 
October 1971

As you can see this really is a full on period Time Trial
bike in the classic British tradition.
Weinmann brake calipers/levers light and reasonably effective.
3TTT Bars and stem, an easy style choice.
Single rear Zeus shifter with classic
Zeus 2000 rear derailleur, how do you make a
Campagnolo Record R/D clone more beautiful,
drill it full of holes of course....  

Stronglight cranks with TA chainring and
Campagnolo Pista pedals.
Italian Gran Prix saddle, drilled, with Zeus seat pin.
Classic shot in stays, bit of a Vic Edwards signature it seems.
Custom 28 hole wooden rims, especially drilled for me by
Ghisallo, laced to Camagnolo low flange hubs.
 Probably not quite a period item, but what hey. they
look cool and ride even better.
