Kvale Details

Still in process - Brooks Swallow saddle, new handlebars will get laced-on honey leather. With the Paul brakes and after I installed the Curtis Odom hubs, the old CLB brake levers looked less and less appropriate. Now I need new bars that will accept the MTB sized Paul levers.

The tires are 700 x 28c Panaracer Fairweather Travelers. The Pacenti rims and the tires are both fine products, but a bitch to marry. Fair warning. The tires need to be stretched like old tubulars to get them on the rims. God forbid I get a flat out on the road. 

Here is what I have so far.

Those CLB are reverse levers, yeah? You're moving in the right direction aesthetically here. Proceed.
