The chainset consists of a Gipiemme Strada right crank, Gipiemme 53T chainring, Campagnolo Strada left crank & Campy drilled 42 ring. The chainring bolts are older Campagnolo. Pedals are a set of nice Look ARC types with smooth spindles and not much wear really(Can be swapped for some basic pedals with toe clips & straps). Bottom bracket has been cleaned out & fresh grease applied and runs smoothly. Sachs chain has been cleaned & is in good condition with no corrosion or stretch.
Brakes are 1970's Dura Ace single pivot with quick release lever & adjuster which both work well, the cables are fitted continental style with the right lever operating the rear brake & vice versa but can easily be changed if you wanted to.
The brake levers are Shimano Exage Aero which are in good nick with no splits to the rubber and the levers spring back nicely. Handlebars are Cinelli Campione du Monde. A brand new packet of original Cinelli cork bar tape can be provided with the bike for an extra £5
Seatpost is a Miche Primato (with safety system) in the aero style, unfortunately this sustained lots of scratches from 1.5 inches below where the aero section starts otherwise this would be superb(it moves fine & internals of seat tube has been regreased) A no name but good condition & very useable racing saddle sits atop it. Fitted with basic Sachs huret down tube shifters and derailleurs, functional but nothing of note.

The wheels are very nice.
The rear is a Mavic MA2 rim hasn't seen much use & is in excellent condition mated with a Q/R Mavic 501 hub & taper gauge stainless steel spokes this really is a very solid, lovely looking wheel. A Sachs 13-24 7 speed freewheel is fitted and is in excellent order.
The front is an older Mavic module E2 with sealed Q/R Pelissier 2000 hub mated with taper gauge spokes spins smoothly & the rim is in good condition. Tyres are a pair of brand new Bontrager 700x25 (not the old Hutchinson&Michelin in the pic) so it's ready to roll.
There is no computer though you can have the sensor & magnet if you like.

[b]I'll take £170 for it which effectively means the frame/forks/BB & headset are freebies considering the value of the rest of the components.
