Sturmey archer 3 speed shifter!

Finally, after a week of anxious waiting, my 3 speed Sturmey Archer shifter has arrived!! I particularly chose the white cover (it's from a 1990s' Raleigh Caprice) because I wanted it to stand out and also blend with the white coloured cables.

Once the shifter is in, next comes the grips. I got this pair of NOS Raleigh grips from a friend. Knowing that I needed a true blue Raleigh item to complete the look, he decided to let me have it for a token fee. What's left for this bike project are the pedals. Still pondering whether to get a original NOS Raleigh pedal or some PRC copy.....
