99 IF de luxe. I've always wanted a steel dream bike.

Just got this back from Tommasini where i had it repainted. (the real colour is darker, kinda team lavender)

Bought it for 315 pounds and spent 180 euros for the paintjob (plus other 30 for the stickers).

Frame had no trace of rust, very, very good conditions.

Now I feel I've spent too much over it. Was it worth it? (I suppose I should ride it rather than ask around, but need to make some money to buy the stuff)

Once youve built it and ridden it, I'm sure it'll be worth every penny!

Agreed! That's a really nice looking frame you have there.

The feeling you get from building and customising your own bike down to the brake pads is priceless IMO!

Of course it's worth it. Quality will always come through, got to remember what these sold for back in the day....
