From what I've heard, the Dellortos work very well. And just look impressive on the bike. Best of luck finding a good set...

On the resto, pics please as the work progresses...

No Bill, I am keeping the darkside and just two-timing it a bit. I bought back a 1977 RS that I bought new and sold to a friend in 1991. It has been melting into his barn floor for the last decade and I thought enough was enough.

As far as the goals for the build - a strong performing S bike. I don't mind fiddling but I'm not into mechanical masturbation. I'd like something with a starting set-up that would run with some tweaking to optimize it. I don't want to have to "discover" the entire set-up.
