Doggonedly good-looking freewheel and chain.
Sram PC-850 - Sram chains are the best and all I'd ever use (except old Sedisports, of which this is the direct descendent).
Note fuzz - cat fur? Old fireweed wool? Who knows! The oily surface of the FW and chain pick it up, though.
The bike's been out and in the shed for a couple weeks since reassembly, so plenty of time to catch it all.

Clandestine view of Winner Pro freewheel through dropout.
Note all that extra freewheel body depth exposed: no 'sink it in' water-trap here! (unlike the 7 speed ones with their overhanging outer cogs: see Tony Oliver's 'Touring Frames' book for a good explanation).
Also note a little oil: this 30-year old unused freewheel I generously oiled and rinsed with Phil Wood Tenacious Oil.

Mafac canti arm - not properly adjusted yet, but still.
Note (marine hub grease at bolt, polished but still 'real' looking worked metal surfaces, jagwire transverse replacement cable (originals were a bit worn; Campag shifter ends fit Mafac transverse ends).

More Mafac coolness.

NOS SR Laprade seatpost (26.8).
In my opinion, the best post for quality, design (a Campag SR copy!), price (formerly - no longer made so hard to find NOS).
Same as original to bike (which with the seat, was missing).

Detail of outer chainring.
Teeth are fine, despite looking a bit worn here - this is the 46 outer.

Now the ST tube transfer, not zapped-up.

Here we go: NOS Suntour sealed bearing pulley wheels!
A leeetle extra super-duperness, why the heck not.
These were the best, of course, I've managed a few over the years and they grace several of my bikes. Nice because unlike some others the wheers are plastic (Derlin?) thus silent and durable.

Chain(ring) gang.
26-36-46.
Middle one is new, with mfg date (they cost like $50 each now, but be assured some happy French guy is making them!), the others original (original middle was 35; TA now no longer makes in odd teeth, but probably more related to what Specialized were able to get quantity of in 1982 than 'specification').

More of the same.

The pedals again!

Marathon HS 404, 47mm (1.75").
Note rim surface" looks used here, but is brand-new...

And the rims are Velocity 'Nobs', 36h (of course).
This is the main 'deviation' from the restoration since the original Araya 7x's are so expensive and hard to find, and nobody makes one that looks like them anymore.
Like Sram chains, Velocity is the only brand of rims I buy now: US made, high quality, etc.
Oddly QBP seems too stupid to be able to get these (or other Velocity rims) to shops even though they allegedly carry Velocity, so I had to get these myself for the shop to build up.
This same extrusion, polished up a lot and anodized and eyelets added, is called the 'Atlas' model. The finish of this one ('Nobs') is also rather fine - also seems anodized to me, the matte alu finish very like the (Australian made) Velocity Dyads on my touring bike.

NOS Mafac '4-dot' pads...
Because the 5-dot (tandem) pads as original are too expensive/hard to find.
The bike had one original pair, now on front, and a set of the 'heat-finned' Matthausers also, now sadly too old and unsafe to use (glued-on pads!).
Boy, I sure liked those old finned Matthausers, though! Even though they're all now too old to be safe because of glue decay, they still appear for over $100 now and then for sale to the unsuspecting/rich/living dangerously...

Lots of car polish here, stem not yet at whatever height I'll set it at (you can see where it was for 30 years despite my heavy polishing)
Note also nice braided NOS Deore XT cables, one gash in otherwise fine (with new cageless Wheels Mfg grade 25 bearings) Specialized 'sealed mechanism' headset.

Running out of things to note.
Miller beer can? ($9.99 a suitcase a couple months ago so stocked up and still have caseandahaff left), crude-ish fork crown, cable wear on HT, chrome of whole frame & fork under paint, etc.

Arrives Fran the Cat from his evening jaunt while I was taking the pictures!
What a pleasure! He's about a foot from the beer cans.
Though taken like the rest of the pix with a cheap digicam, this is the only one in this series that I zappifed a little in photoshop, since his white fur is so bright it sort of lost detail and I wanted to get a little back...

He posed cutely near the bike but of course when I finally 'got it just right' be moved.

And again... wondering what the hell I am up to...
Note outhouse in background.

And again...
Nice view of the big bike from chain side - was hard to get the thing to stay (the bike and the cat for that matter)...

Finally the usual situation happened to slow down the Cat - grooming of the luxurious fur!

This is where the bike's been living lately, the sauna-shed attached to that platform.
Note 1970s hand-knitted blanket on "Pablo Neruda" chair, with catnip cigar.
The chair faces outward and I have the door propped open a few inches; the Cats very like this arrangement, esp. wit the 'new' blanket
(the former, now underneath, was an old wool army blanket).
Note bones, etc. and miscellanies around shed/walls.
