Pearl white with red decals and Panto - sorry everyone!

Next question is what to build it with. I am wrestling with either Campag Record Titanium 9 speed - I have a complete groupset and wheels in near mint condition I also have a Dura Ace 7400 group that I’ve been collecting, mostly NOS 7 speed


Some references here, has to be Campagnolo.

I’ve read all of your site - very useful and also saw your red one at EB2015 which is probably why I fancied one.

I’m not sure what the build year is to be honest - just that it’s a later one.

I want to build something I will ride on fine days rather than a wall hanger, so it will likely be the Record Ti 9 speed. The only thing I will need to change are the rims as these are currently a Mavic CPX30. I’ve bought some Campag Omega 19 clinchers in NOS

That paint is wrong if it is an attempt to recreate the original. The colours were much softer.

See.

My frame came to me completely stripped. The only reason I know it is Spumoni is the traces inside the seat tube, head tube and a slight bit of colour in the GPT raised panto on the BB shell. There is no other trace of colour so I think that residue is the original paint.

They are not pastel shades though.


Maybe not the original paint then ...

Yeah maybe - however, as the paint inside the tubes is the only paint I can see, so it’s either the original colours or someone stripped the inside of all the tubes too whilst repainting it. Who knows?

Truth is no one now ... both Montellos I have had have been clean inside so I'd guess the overspray is not original.

Anyway let's see some photos of the finished item

Dunno why you'd say that? It's a great frame.

I also had a Montello .... I'd say this one is not a Montello but a Treviso with the Alexi Grewal Olympic colors. Original, but not a Montello spumoni ;)

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. :)

Hopefully the frame will be back from the painter next week.
I'm definitely going to use my Record Titanium 9 speed groupset to start with. I have also sourced some NOS Campag Omega 19 rims to go on it. The current wheelset has the matching hubs but very weighty CPX30 aero rims which don't float my boat. It's getting hard to find decent clincher rims unless you sell a kidney.

All I need now are an ITA bottom bracket, to choose a saddle, bars, stem and tape.
