I have a thing for Passoni too. I was lucky enough to take a modern Top Force W out for a spin last year and feel in love, pure beauty with ride qualities to match.

I found a Nova frame from around 2001, at a price that didn't involve selling a kidney. It's a couple of sizes too big for me, but to be honest I don't care - it's a Passoni – a short stem goes a long way. It had a fairly dated paint job, so I stripped and polished it (to expose the amazing workmanship), and redesigned the decals in the current look.
It has an Easton Scandium front triangle with titanium stays.

That is the best interpretation of cycle art that I have ever seen

It has just replaced the 753 Ti Raleigh frame at the top of my wish list

Stunning doesn`t even begin to describe it, you are a very lucky man!
