1969 Bottecchia Road Frame and Fork, Completely chromed under the paint

Chrome Nitto NJS Track Bars held by (in photo) the original Carnelli stem which I broke (now using a Cinelli stem)

1969 Bottecchia Fork also chromed under paint

Some cheapo wheel is shown but I built a set using those Formula track hubs laced to some silver Mavic CXP33 32 hole rims

Formula/Mavic combo also both front and rear with DT double swaged (butted) spokes

Some Shimano road cranks on whatever BB was in there - not sure really

Old Campy seatpost with a fizik saddle (shown) later switched to a white Selle Italia Turbo vintage seat

Time ATAC MTB pedals, KMC HX610 3/32" BMX racing chain

Geared 39t x 14t now, although I started with 15t in the rear. Pittsburgh is very hilly.

Have since upgraded to some white SOMA track grips. The front brake is an Ultegra level long reach jobber. The top tube protector is made from a cheap Falcon grip-shift grip and a zip tie.

dude, this is an amazing frame. I really think you should sell it and get a track bike. I know a lot of people that would kill for this much did you get it for?

I think my Fuji Racing is a

I think my Fuji Racing is a copy of this bike. Did it originally have Neuvo Record kit? Mine was equipped with copies of all the campy stuff. Amazing quality of course.

Not sure...

I got this as a frameset and don't really know what parts originally came on it. Could have been Campy but then again maybe not...
