Shimano Ultegra FC-6604 chainset

I have been trying to get hold of some replacement rings for my Shimano triple chainset, but cant find new ones anywhere. Are there any other shimano rings that might fit?

Ultegra ST-6600 & ST R600 Flight deck shifters with a triple ?

Does anybody know if these shifters will work with a triple chainset. I have read that a lot of the early shimano LH levers would work with either double or triple chainsets, but cant find anything to confirm when this stopped being the case,

Sturmey Archer 8 speed hub, brazed on fittings

I am in the process of sending an old road/path frame off to Argos to get resprayed prior to building it up with an 8 speed Sturmey Archer hub gear.

Re: Jack Taylor enamelled Frame

It certainly is a lovely frame. I have looked up Morris, but it appears that their frame numbers started with a H. It might be that from a historical perspective, better to leave the frame as it is. There can’t be many around with enamelled by Jack Taylor decals on
