Very nice, i had a Guerciotti badged Alan BITD.

Those ones ate Columbus Thron though so not the highest spec. But £399 for frame forks and Dura Ace headset sounds reasonable when you think that bog standard steel road frames are often £300+

Not wishing to hijack anyones thread but, where does Columbus Thron sit in the range? I picked up a mint Peugeot Thron frame/ forks for £40 at a car boot in the summer.

Lowish, but Columbus don't make rubbish. Thron was oversized butted CrMo. The higher end tubes used the Nivacrom and Thermacrom alloys.

I also understand that Thron was also sometimes used on larger frames
