Spanish Super Olympic 70 long reach brakes & levers

Finally built up this year after the frameset hung in my shed for years gathering cobwebs..relaxed long geometry more that of a sports bike than a real racer, probably came with 27"wheelset,hence the trouble of finding a decent long reach brake set to fit.
A set of rare NOS spanish Super OLympic brakes and levers did the trick in the end, a bit crude, not too elegant in design but somehow its suits this bike I think .Original paint and decals, chrome fork ends survived really well.Components a mix and match of what I had plus some luck finding those brakes. Just for its looks a nice L'eroica candidate if you're not striving for the competition element..

So 70s

Really enjoyed these Atala photos. Restoration came out great!

thanks, wasn't so much real

thanks, wasn't so much real restoration but more of a put back together with parts that would not look to out of place even if they probably are not correct for that frame..still enjoyed building it and now riding it on occasions ;-)
