awesome bike...really love

awesome bike...really love well as the photos. amazing!

Amazing. I ended up with one

Amazing. I ended up with one of these frames. :) I'm currently building up with a full Dura Ace group (minus the original Campy headset). Mine still has the original fork.

How does she ride? I'm dying to find out for myself.




I'm not exactly an expert but I'm pretty sure the group is Chorus. Record had the delta brakes and on the crankset the fifth arm on the spider is integrated into the crank arm. Very classy indeed.


Indeed that looks like a complete early Chorus group(1988), seeing as the monoplaner brakes got white rubber on the adjusting barrel while the later ones got black. Judging by the shifters I'd also suppose you're running non-indexed 7-speed? Very nice bike, although I'd turn down the bars a little bit.. ;-)

Awesome bike, great pictures
