That is one sweet bike. A few months ago I convinced myself I was going to get a Heron. I went to pull the trigger right as they closed shop. There are a few of them in the Seattle area, and they always seem to get a ton of miles.
Thanks for all of the kind comments.
The headset spacers were contributed by a fellow mechanic who had a whole lot of colored spacers but not enough silver ones. We managed to find a color combination that worked for the bike.
The Shimano center pulls and derailleurs were taken off an old Fuji road bike that was one step from the dumpster. We think the bike was close to 30 years old.
The Brooks saddle is a professional model which I have been breaking in for over 15 years.
