Put this together last night -

Mecacycle Turbo piste :) Somewhat temporary build, a mix of Campagnolo Record Pista and Stronglight bits, 3ttt and a Super Turbo saddle with nice world-championship stripes. Best matching saddle for this particular bike I think. Not sure of the next direction, either leave as is or mount more french bits.

It's not lacquered so it oxidises to a dull brown. I expect if I left it long enough it would go green. It doesn't take too long to polish it back up though.

Having it turn green is pretty neat and the bike looks a little bit 'Steam Punk' to me, which I like
The green would go well with the orange and white (at least it would if you were Irish I guess)

This is one of my urban bikes.

Saronni frameset, Campagnolo and... single speed.

I hope you like it
