My first fully Campy equiped Champi. Love it already! Supersmooth ride, even with poor adjustment and a cockpit that's decomposing (34 years old). The old tubularslook like they have hardly been used and got me through some dirtroads (mud&seashells).

3/2/2013: Update!
Work is finished! Well, almost finished. Still have to shine up the rims and replace the tubulars, but the polish&wax job (the 'pullup-method': all credits to him) sure worked out nicely and made the colour shine bright like a Dutch masterpiece from the golden age of cycling.

All bearings cleaned and regreased, fresh campy hoods and cloth bartape (with some nice cinelli plugs), newish Arius saddle in what I think is a nice colour and new cables really finish it off. Though the cables look a little too new & white, so I'll take it out more often :)

I seemed to have liked this bike earlier but there should be an option to double-like it

This bike is super-nice!!!! Rode a Gazelle A-frame, Reynolds 531, mix of Campagnolo and Mavic-components and 3T handlebars and stem, when i was racing in the 80's.

That's cool! Are there still any pics of that bike? As you may have noticed, I got a thing for Champion Mondial...
