No more photo's but some progress.

The Dura Ace shifters arrived today and they are in spanky condition, so they are now on, as is the rear mech and the brand new cassette.

On the down side the BB that came with the Dura Ace 7400 cranks neither fits the frame, nor, as it turns out is the right size, it is a 115 and should be a 112. Looking on the net, 112 BB's are not common so I will use the 113 I already have in stock. Also, looking at the cranks, both chain rings are pretty shot, so two new rings in slightly more 'weedy legs' friendly sizes have been ordered from Spa Cycles. Hopefully they will get here quicker than the chain and cassette I ordered from SJS Cycles in Bridgwater, they took seven days in total to make it the 20 miles door to door. :facepalm: I could have walked there and back quicker than that.

As soon as the chain rings get here I will get them fitted, get the cranks on and start cabling up.

Done, but not yet ridden, because we are enjoying the first rain in over a month.

Interesting discovery in my ongoing research into all things Cougar...

Dave Lloyd was one of the Cougar frame builders and one of the three that set up Corrado when Dolan sold the Cougar brand to Paul Donohue.

These Deda Zero Tre framesets are pro team Colnago C40 copies, of which there are apparently three... Casino (black, white and yellow), Rabobank as above and a blue Mapei one, which I can't think I've seen an example of. They will all be 1997 at the earliest, more likely 98.

I have also managed to bag a NOS orangey one!!! Cost me a fortune though...

Just to add to that, Dave Lloyd stopped making his own frames in 1997, the steel frames he sold after that, called the Concept 2000 were welded not braised and were made for Dave by Paul Donohue.

The same Paul Donohue who possibly made the C40 Cougars we own, although they may be Italian built and finished.

Fascinating stuff.

Well whoever made mine certainly knew his beenz, cos it rides like a goodun.

When I get a minute I will build up my (my sons) C2000 and do a three way comparison with my C90 and the C40, although I already know the C40 is a more compliant ride.

We need pictures, and if possible to get these three copies together.
