L'Eroica build continued

So the Raleigh TI build is going along swimmingly, almost all parts have been obtained with just the saddle and pedals still to find.  My original seat post obtained from the States was the wrong size so a further internet search located a Super Record post in a shop in Boulder Colorado that specialises in vintage parts. Its now on its way to the UK. Although during my search for components I have obtained some Nuovo Record parts, I have managed to get a complete Super Record group set and thats whats been fitted to the frame.
So heres some more pictures to see the current state of the build including the wheels. Record hubs with  Mavic GP4 rims shod with Tufo Tubular tyres
