So where exactly does one find a bike’s worth of 1980-90s vintage parts….

Here and there.

4 countries, 6 states, and several bikes stores later…

This is the beginning of a beautiful friendship

Like an amazing metaphor for life, these Cinelli bars/stem will guide the old Guerch. Why amazing? Cinelli was responsible for getting the Guerciotti brothers into frame building and trained them in the art. So the partnership continues.

One side note, the bars are actually relatively modern, but still have the old school Cinelli bar diameter. They also feature the “ergo” bend (see how it’s not a smooth curve like most retro bars), which will be nice once it’s actually time to go on some long rides. Hands — you are welcome.
