C Record Cobaltos

I saw my Holy Grail listed about an hour's drive from me at a too-good-to-be true price and jumped on it. It is a perfect fit and the bike is in very very good shape with top of the line parts. The last photo is how it was when I got it, with Cobalto brakes and a Brooks Professional saddle, both of which have been replaced. The Cobaltos are beautiful to look at but too risky to ride with (the jewels pop out quite easily) and the saddle is too nice of a target for a thief.

This is my favourite bike and I now understand why people go nuts for De Rosas, the ride is sublime.
