Campagnolo Record

Selle San Marco, not sure, something longer then the Campy post it came with.

Mks track pedals, soon to be something shiny campy or clipless.

Campagnolo Record 8spd.

I believe the bike is a 1988 Corsa Extra in almost mint condition. I bought it on Ebay from a guy who, after building it up to this incredible level was apparently afraid to ride it. It sat for a few years until he sold it to me. I'm not afraid to ride it, although the thought of it getting dirty, or worse does scare the crap out of me. :)

UPDATED-- New rims, had to go clinchers. There is way too much glass in Brooklyn and not enough $$$ in my wallet for tubulars. Swapped the bar tape to black, white only looks good until you actually use it.

i would

go with white cloth and yellow shellac, it would look really sexy.

Beautiful !!

The saddle is a SELLE San Marco Regal. And please get a vintage seat post.. that thing spoils the bike. But a lovely ride nonetheless.

noted and fixed.

Spoils the bike? Isn't that a bit harsh? It's not like I threw lime green deep V's on it. The Campy post it came with is just too short for my giant legs. I threw this on so I can use the bike while I figure out a period correct alternative. Personally I think the pedals and clips are a bigger sin against nature then the post. :)

Actually..

you're right. But a few tweaks and she'll be perfect! :)

What's the extra piece on

What's the extra piece on the right shifter? Is it a miniature barrel adjuster? That would be amazing.

hmm

It's what anchors the cable, not sure why it has that extra piece. The other side doesn't. Perhaps one of the many Campy experts out there can answer that for you.

damn

nice!
