Well. It looks like the Pinarello's out of it. But, maybe I can squeeze another vote with these. Just received my new black br-m732 brakes today. The very last piece in transforming the bike back to 1990. I didn't think I'd ever find a black set. So, I have a completely original spec, NOS
Pinarello Antelao. I almost want to cry.

Real tough this month but I thought the pinarello deserved my vote the most. Must have been very hard to find all those nos parts, I honestly think it would have got more votes but it looks so damn original and minty fresh that maybe people assumed it was picked up complete and there was no 'story' or work behind it. Not that that should matter, but it does somehow especially with so many excelent bikes on show.

The brakes just finish it off REALLY please for you. Its lovely when the icing arrives for the cake. As with anything I make, the only way to do it is to do it right. Those brakes are the mutts, especially with the pads. Well done. :wink:
