I still haven't taken any of my own pictures of this bike yet, but my build of this Orange Dynamo is very much in full swing:
I am chuffed to bits with this frame. The seller says it was made as a one-off for him in '93 by none other than Steve Wade - that the original owner used to ride with Wade was confirmed by none other than our own Cannondale King...!
I'm afraid I am going for a sympathetic build rather than a full-on retrobike - I intend this to be very much a rider, and something I'll use in bad weather so no esoteric bits, just functional and dependable kit. I've got 9-speed Dura Ace downtube shifters and vintage Dura Ace brake levers (spring return aero ones, beautiful). I've bought a NOS Syncros roadie stem / seatpost and a Shimano factory wheelset. I'll probably end up with a Nitto bar and a Flite saddle, the rest of the stop-and-go stuff is likely to be Ultegra from when 9-speed first came out.
