Nice work. I was going to do mine that colour combo (I'll have to paint it red now.)


Do you know what year it is?

would think it was late 80's early 90's as has a complete Athena 8 speed index gear system as well as the rest of the groupset including black campag 700c rims.
frame tubing was Columbus SL for the 3 mail tubes.

he is doing 100 plus miles a week on it at present and it does look the DB's !!!!!!

why spend £1000 plus on a carbon frame when for £180 you can get a classic italian steel one refurbished.
