Well it finally happened, I got myself a (mostly) Italian build project. Started with just the frame/fork, 63cm seat 58 top. Frame was sanded down from a poor repaint to bare steel, not sure where I'm going from here. As you can tell, it's a snug retro fit with a short stem and a fistful of post. Fun experiment but I'm not sure that it's for me. Crazy tall-frame geo; just look at that HT angle.

Parts came rather cheaply from coworkers. I may not keep this for long, but it was a nice project and I'm glad to get this bad boy back on the road. It was a good experience getting a basic familiarity with older Campy Record; the finish on the componentry is second to none and everything is very serviceable, but I still prefer my friction Cyclone/Superbe setups. Admittedly this group has seen quite a bit of use and may not be a prime example of Italian prowess.

After a little catalog-stalking, this appears to be the top-o-da-line, Record Professional model M-101. Originally its paint was white with a red headtube and red section on the seat tube.

Sold it back in June. Someone was willing to pay the price I put into it, so it goes. Got a Frenchy project coming along in its place.

Long Drop Outs.

Just lovely, really dig the older Atalas.

thanks campystamp

it is a very beautiful frame. There's a crimp in the TT caused by some gorilla overtightening a cable stop, which I could probably have filled with brass and then get a nice repaint. I have a feeling that those things would cost me more than I spent on the build itself, which would probably be silly. We shall see!

When I lived in Philly,

I had Bilenky Cycle Works repair a 1962 Schwinn Paramount track frame. The top and bottom had to be rolled out due to a previous accident. Dent in top tube was filled in with silver. They also restored it with the decal set I acquired from Waterford and pinstriped the Nervex lugs. It was about four hundred for the whole shot. Doesn't hurt to look in to it. I hear Cyclart is pretty good.

Nice pick up!!!!
