"Celeste" tape and saddle, haven't found (nor looked very hard) for that color housing; but I assume it's available. I have a Favorit seat post coming for it since mine doesn't have the "F" logo embellishment. I forgot to install the Soviet frame pouch, but it will be on the final build.
It has been a fun project and low cost at about $300 for the bike and all the extras I've bought to restore/refurbish. I'm still seeing these sport models selling for well over $500, some attempting to be sold for over $1000; but I can't see them actually selling for that much. I thought these were popular bikes in Eastern Europe, and expected them to be as abundant as Schwinns are in the US; and thus inexpensive. Perhaps a little higher quality than its Schwinn sibling; I don't know, but certainly much rarer. I haven't been able to locate a true racing bike; complete or frame set only.
Take care,
Jesper
