    That outer chainring looked pretty worn to me…

    Beautiful work!

    I had the very same groupset on the road bike I built up. Not once did it let me down. Once a week I would lubricate the axles with paraffin to help them run just a bit faster. Oh how I miss it.

    Soft guy question here: did you ever consider getting a cheap ultrasonic cleaner? I believe much of that cleaning and even some of the polishing could have been replaced by giving it all 10 minutes in the ultrasonic…

    A lots of work



  7. Graeme on September 25, 2020 at 3:45 am

    i had that groupset back in the day.πŸ‘

    What is that blaster you are cleaning with! I thought it was sand but that would take the parts to bare metal.

    THAT IS A GREAT VIDEO, please, make one more vid sligthly more focused on the rear derailier . My bike is a restored vintage, with first ed 105s( 7speed) and 8 speed brifters. is a nice combo. i restored the whole frame and introduced some mavic aksium and bontrager racing saddle to it. though still a steel frame it rides like warm blade on butter.

    Iv got a lovely 30year old shimano 600 ultegra groupset with boxes that needs your t.l.c it’s still on my 531 Reynolds Orbit frame

    I seek out the vintage XT 7 speed drive trains. To me they work! Same as the 105. None of this stamped steel painted black crap on Tourney, Altus and Acera. Love how you took the time in bringing that vintage stuff back to life.

    very satisfying!



  13. Wasupwitdat1 Mofiki on September 25, 2020 at 3:55 am

    I’m the type of guy who would just rather buy new stuff.



  14. Aleksandar Petrovski on September 25, 2020 at 3:57 am

    I still ride the same groupset. Last year I did revitalization, and its in super great condition. One thing that concerns me since i’m no bike mechanic, is that the front wheel hub has started to develop noise, like the internal lagers are rusted. That’s why I cant to see the restoration of them πŸ˜‰ Keep the good work up, cheers!!!



  15. Alexander Rivera on September 25, 2020 at 3:57 am

    This is amazing, do you know where can i buy that cleaning appliance?



  16. Andrew Littleton on September 25, 2020 at 3:58 am

    Nice. I have an old Bianchi with a complete 1056 series groupset. Still works great.



  17. Life_Dweller on September 25, 2020 at 3:59 am

    ahh, the good old days, when you didn’t have to plug in your bicycle into a wall outlet-, or have a smart phone and app just to go for a ride

    Oh man! This bring back memories 30 years ago as a college student and active in road bike racing. I was salivating and dreaming for Campagnolo groupset but the Shimano 105 was the one I can afford with my allowance and partime jobs that time. But it turned out that the 105 is the one for me. I was competitive that time. For me the performance and smooth shifting compared to a much superior Dura Ace are just the same, the only difference or advantage of the later is the weight.

    Hello, What is red block you use for polishing? πŸ™‚

    It’s so satisfying to watch you lovingly restore the parts back to it’s former glory. πŸ™‚



  22. Luca Stefan on September 25, 2020 at 4:15 am

    Worthless video. Boring watching you work. Too bad you weren’t able to provide instructions, tips or anything that would help others with restoration. If I wanted to listen to music, I can listen to the radio.
    Comments by others just as lame and worthless. Bunch of comments "I had that same groupset…". Really stupid.



  23. Angel A-ones Roman on September 25, 2020 at 4:16 am

    I’d really like to see you put it to use on a new bike, nice job…
