Finished! Trek 560 Remade

Finally finished this project after six months. Have got a “brand new” cross-bike after cannabalizing parts and adding about $250 worth of other stuff. Here are the specs and note on the problems still with it. This bike was originally 23.4 lbs. Wonder how much it is now.
* Trek 560 Frame. 1985 Purple and Yellow, but still in good shape. It is steel, but not rusted. _Could use a coat of paint though (oh well)._
* Tange Mangalloy CCL Crown Fork and Trek Pro Black Headset
* Sterling Icon Stem. 110mm. Came off of my Trek 5900. Has a Cinelli Threadless to Threaded quill adapter to mate it with the 1 inch steerer.
* 3T Prima 199 Bars. Again from my 5900. Nice set of light bars.
* Selle San Marco Era. A very nice saddle.
* Sugino SP-KC Forged Alloy seat post. Original seat post is you can believe that. Good
* Campagnolo Record Ergo Levers. Scratched, but from my old 5900 pre-accident.
* Suntour Front and Rear Brakeset. Has Tek brake holders and pads though.
* Suntour Front Derailleur. The original front derailleur, seems to work OK.
* Campagnolo Chorus Long Cage Rear Derailleur. New part, it is sized for 13-29 cassettes.
* Campagnolo Chorus 13-26 Cassette. I only got 13-26 in the rear
* Campagnolo Record Bottom Bracket and Crankset. Again, badly scratched and dinged, but still functional. 53-39 rings.
* Campagnolo Cableset. Hard to thread, but they are on there now.
* Campagnolo Record Chain. Brand new since the 13-29 needs a long chain.
* Campagnolo Record Hubs on Mavic CXP-33 rims with double-butted spokes in a 3-cross pattern. This is my toughest wheelset.
* Michelin Cyclocross Jet 700×30 tires. These are fine for the front, but rub just a little in the rear. _I need to replace with a 700×30 Ritchey Speedmax tire in the rear as the 30 is just a little too big pumped at 50 psi for the brake, but not the frame. This is a big tire that is really a 35c which is the problem._
* Cinelli Bar tape. Completes the ensemble.
