Campagnolo Record road double with 47t Miche chainring and Phil Wood bottom bracket

16t EAI cog (47x16), standard Shimano flat bar brake levers, Tektro regular reach brakes, fender, and lots of rust.

I actually had intended to remove only the logos and leave the bike entirely black, but in about 20 seconds of hot, bubbly paint I realized Jasco is some REALLY tenacious stuff. So, I had to spend the next two hours liberally applying the stuff and taking all of the paint off. I then took a spray can of clear coat to it, and the rest is history.

shit looks

shit looks bombproof.


same bike?

why does your paint look

why does your paint look like that already?

He stripped the paint off

He stripped the paint off and clear coated it to prevent rust. That's what bare steel looks like.

Very nice

Nice bike, I like the stripped paint look. Im definatly thinking about getting one of these. Yours is the one with the 57.5 top tube right? If so how tall are you? I'm like 6' tall with about a 33.5 inch inseam. It's down between the 53 or 57. Im also in cincinnati, I just stated at UC and I am liking the city a lot. It seems like the fixed gear scene is pretty big here.




Any update photos of the frame? What clearcoat did you use and how bad is the rust?
