Thanks mate, means a lot. I'm sure it's a sign this bike survived. I knew when I saw it in the shop's basement I had to have it, especially passing through hands of people I know over the last 30-40 years. And considering this bike was pulled from a dumpster in '83, and still rides happily today, I've got a responsibility to keep it going.
And I was real worried about the carbon, I mean I'm not sure how hot it got, but nothing plastic on the bike melted, and the fork feels just fine. If there's a catastrophic failure, I'll make my mechanic friend buy me a new fork.
