Had the frame for a while. An entry level road frame with real wimpy-looking dropouts. Well I decided it deserved better so Steve at the local shop, the bike stand ( brazed on a pair of track ends and it came out awesome! I then rebuilt it, using some better parts than it had before, such as the campy headset and newer front hand brake.

Update: 5-8-13: Just got this thing painted bright red. Being rebuilt e/ a chromed fork but the fork was too short. So... used a used carbon fork and threadless headset.... so far. Oh Also a dura-ace bottom bracket old school Italian threads... gearing was a brisk 44/16, then went to a 42t front (no pic yet)
