Repairing a 1980's Tarini Road Bike

Just a small project this time. Picked up a $90 road bike off trademe. She needed a bit of TLC, all the bearings were shot, the bar tape was brittle and the tyres were perished. But $50 later and its back to its 1980’s glory.

After

I did end up changing over the rear cassette to a broader range 7 speed, up from the 6 speed. But because it uses friction shifters I didn’t need new gears.
