Not sure on era for this one, perhaps with the curved fork it's mid 80s?

Anyway, built up with Corsa Record, Cinelli and Rolls. Only ridden down the lane so far but looking forward to going further afield.

Can I ask if this is an Italian size / thread bottom bracket shell? If so, what. BB are you using? I need one for a 1st Gen. C-rec chainset and the originals are getting hard to find.

Thanks. Think I need 113mm one from what I can find.

It's an Athena b/b, 111mm I think.

I was going to say that you can get 111mm Italian threaded b/bs from Geoffrey Butler but the Veloce one http://www.gbcycles.co.uk/eshop.asp?wci ... OM+BRACKET is out of stock.

However the Tifosi ones are really good, 102mm for more recent Record plus 111mm too http://www.parker-international.co.uk/1 ... acket.html and really easy to fit witha Shimano splined b/b tool.

Excellent stuff Ed, you've done a great job there!

Are you pleased with the ride?

I would be inclined to stick a white rolls on it, but then I am a bit of a tart...

Good to see it built up 8)

Awesome Ed 8) That paint looks very good on the Colnago. Tasty and not the busy impression of the Art Decor. A rider? Which of the two you like more? :)
