This was a craigslist find that I picked up as a birthday present for myself. The two things that really sold me on this frame were the Hetchins like lugs and cool mono-stay design. Before I could finish building it up, I crashed my keirin bike and broke my pinky which made wrenching and riding impossible. It took nearly three months, but my body and wallet have recovered from my accident. Here is the finished product, it rides like a dream!

This frame was built by Colin Laing, an Englishman who moved to the United States and had a shop in Arizona. I don't know much about the history of this particular frame, other than it was built for a guy named Jerry Grence. My guess is that this frame was built sometime in the late eighties judging by the Reynolds 531 Professional decal.

You're right!!

They are all so distinct!! That looks incredible!! Also
Also Century! my favorite campy colorwsy

I agree, the Century finish is so nice but it is getting harder to find the components. I have three Centaur Century equipped bikes with a partial group for backup. It makes everything look so classy!
