    It ought to be buttoned up and largely ready to go very soon - except for one item. Well, three items.

    I need pipes!

    I'll be contacting Higgspeed soon, I suppose... once I've refilled the kitty a little bit, anyhow!

    You're reusing the bolts? Because bottom-left looks a little corroded...

    Studs, actually.

    Trying to remove them after 40 years would probably result in snapping several off; then drill/tap. No one makes new ones, either. With bikes of this age, you often have to use what you've got. Mine seemed fine. Discolored, but no pits, etc.
