Have you checked if it's a Montello by looking if there is the junction between the 2 chainstays close to the BB ?

Beatfiful frame indeed.


Hi
There isn’t a chain stay bridge and the tubing has the SLX rifling for sure. It’s a later one though with 130mm spacing and 2 sets of bottle cage bosses

Thanks
John


Sounds like a Montello for sure.

There are some tips on aging here, it's mainly guess work. :)

I will need some step down ferrules for the brake housing. I've seen your drawing of the dimensions but did you buy them ready made?

The ferrules are a pain.

I have bought a range of stepped ferrules, fortunately they are cheap.

I have never found the perfect one, the old ones that have come with frames have never been perfect.

In the end I selected the closest fit then shimmed the thin end with a tiny bit of coke can where it goes in the frame.

I dropped both headsets up to the shop to see what they can do - one of them will fit.

As it is a later frame with 130mm rear spacing, I have Campag Record Titanium 9 speed full group in mint condition which I am going to use. Ill see how that looks.
It was a choice between that or 8 speed Dura Ace which I have been collecting over the past year.

That will look about as close to perfect as you can, I would say :)

Not at all - Jason Rourke at Brian Rourke Cycles. Jase builds and paints himself. I've had a few re-finishes over the past few years and I've always been happy with the result. He isn't expensive either.

Decals were from: http://bicycledecals.net/ based in Bury

mulling over bar tape and saddles.

I have a red Brooks swallow or I can lay my hands on a red Turbo. I have some red Benotto ribbon or the matching red Brooks leather bar tape. Which would look best?

I love the look of Benotto but not the confort
