I bought this last year from a friend of old Ned it was just a frame and brakes but the frame was mint so I Just matched the colours from our mixing scheme at work and did some very delicate touching in and polishing.

The spec is

Shimano 105 group set

Mavic sprint rims

campag seat pin (on loan from old Ned)

selle flight titanium saddle

cinelli bars, stem and tape

campag headset

I have used modern pedals and bottle cages to get me on the road. When you say it's finished it never really is I will try and source some Ta cages and time pedals at some point This is my first ever road bike I had my first outing on it today it goes like a bas*ard it's just a shame the roads are so bad :x :x

The damn problem with old time pedals is the need for specially drilled shoes (Time only)or those thick look adapters ,let alone the slipperyness of the brass cleat when walking. (otherwise they are great)

Looks great mate! You'll have to come with me on a ride soon once you've got used to it. Plenty of tea shops around!

And the club 10's start quite soon............................ :wink:

I will do Paul it just needs a few tweaks this weekend, then the following weekend I am going to cadwell park race circuit to help my mates once the last race has finished you can go out on the circuit. A weekend ticket including camping only costs £12, and I can go round the track all night, if you wish. Can't go wrong. :D :D :D :D :D :D :D
