No idea what year the frame is (approx '94) but this is a mishmash build of my Campagnolo parts bin

Columbus Strada tubing

Campagnolo C.Record F&R mechs, Delta brakes

Campagnolo Mirage cranks 42/53

Shimano 105 aero SPD

Mavic MA3 rims/ Mirage 9spd hubs

Mavic BB

Mirage 9spd Ergo

Cinelli bars/ stem

Specialized 26.8mm seatpost

Rolls saddle.

new bar tape (2 projects old!)

Clean blood off frame :shock: :P

Better pics when thesun or spring or summer comes

A BIG thanks to Elev12k for the frame and the tyres and to Retrobike for improving my roadie tastes... :wink:

lux great! Never seen that colour before.
any chance of a better (no offence) pic? The green bin and the grass somewhat camouflage it.

and Deltas too .. wish I'd kept mine

Great frame 8) , nicely built

Happy to see the tyres also found good use.

Isn't it a bit slippery in the snow?

Did you give the frame a decent rust prevention treathment? -especially for those conditions
