THE STREET RESTORED PROCTOR

Though it took a few months to get at, and get done, the Proctor, by mid winter the bicycle had been fully gone through, built up and was ready for pictures and riding.  Unfortunately, in Thunder Bay, where I live, the middle of the winter is not the best time to ride high end vintage racing bicycles.  With that in mind, the Proctor would sit and wait until the warmer weather, and salt free roads presented themselves.

But the Proctor turned out looking absolutely great, in my opinion.  The black component grouppo, hoods, bar tape and saddle, perfectly compliment and contrast with the red paint.  Though there is still a bit of surface rust, to address, on the chain stays, the bicycle is pretty much finished and road ready.

Much has changed since I first spotted and lusted after the Proctor.  Gone is the Campy NR grouppo.  Sew-up wheels have been replaced with good quality vintage clinchers.  And those pedals, that came with the bicycle, are now replaced, with the clip in mountain bike pedals, that I prefer to fit on all of my bicycles.

So, the Proctor waits for Spring.  And does a pretty nice job of doing just that...
