I've been after one of these for a while, not my ideal colour scheme, but they are few and far between in Chateau D'Ax colours and I have basically given up waiting!

Thanks to a very amenable guy on Italian Ebay I now have this & I love it; the colour in the flesh is fantastic.

I'm guessing it's 92, full Dura Ace, but minus the original skewers which is annoying. If anyone has a pair they are selling let me know! I'm not really into the brifters, so may change to conventional brake levers and gear levers a la Bugno who was a late convert, still ridng 'normal' levers when the rest of the team had moved on.

It weighs in at 9.7KG, but it's a chunky bike. The paint probably weighs a kilo! Wheels looks brand new with stunning narrow gauge aero spokes, in fact all the components look like they have had minimal use. My first Shimano equipped bike!

A few pics for you.

If anyone knows any more about them e.g. was there a team who had these colours, please let me know.

Now that is a lovely looking frame, very nice indeed.
How did you get it over from Italy?

I paid €90!!

The seller was really helpful obviously, but I think having an Italian mate who first contacted him in Italian helped.

Lovely looking bike, I too have been after a Bugno team one for years , but never see them either. Like the colour scheme, and looks to be in very good condition as well!

The bike was a good price (or at least I think it was), so I was happy with €90. I reckon €60 is about the going rate, but to be fair he had to get a box and mess around packing it up as well.

It's in great condition Mike, it's like it's hardly been ridden. Just a massive chip from transit where the brake has hit the down tube which I am gutted about. I'm going to try and get that sorted obviously.
