After a bad experience with an ebay seller not shipping my item, I finally received my bar tape after re-ordering it from somewhere else.

For brake levers, I got the XLC aero brake levers (Which really seem to be the Tektro RL340s in disguise).

For cables, I went for Universal Jagwire cable from Ebay. I thought it was fairly cheap.

Finally for Tape, I went with SRAM.

I should be receiving my Cateye Velo 9 this Tuesday, and at that point, my mods, I think, will stop for a while.

Oh, also, I already found out the bike is a 91. I found on a website that the year is on the headbadge.

My Caliente was a bit big for me, so I traded it for a smaller one. The levers and calipers are Tektros, the stem was swapped for an aluminum one with a longer reach, and the rest pretty much remains the same as the larger one.
