Lashed this together tonight so here are some predictably hopeless photos.

Build is Dura Ace 7400 series, Mavic ceramics, Cinelli bars and stem (and tape!), Rolls, Campag Ti post. Not decided on which set of Look pedals to stick on.

Road test will be post Mayhem now.

Crap photos though.

Nice. Corsa Extra's ride so solid. Now get some better pics to show it off!

Nice Ed. 7Eleven livery?

I just finished this 'ground-up' build for a Mate this afternoon. Retro-mod D.T. Corsa Extra build, CK hubs & H/S, 10 speed Athena. 9.45kg as pictured.

We seem to be on a roll with recent Merckx Corsa Extra builds so I thought I'd add my nearly finished bike in Team Kelme colours.

The plan is to use a 10 speed Record/Chorus set up with rims and hubs to match.

No, not 7-11 (I had one of those but a touch small), I must get up a complete photo as perhaps someone can identify the colour scheme.

That Kelme colour scheme looks pretty sweet.

Thanks for details on the team colours, certainly one that I hadn't recognised.

Ok, finally sorted out some photos (typically crap ones though).

Apologies for the big cassette at the back, it's set up in climbing mode. Oh, and the faux pas of a Campag headset and a Campag post on an otherwise Shimano equipped bike (although the groupset consistency is actually pretty good for me).

Corsa Extra, baby!

To my eyes, one of the nicest looking rear mechs that Shimano ever produced

'Belgium Handmade' indeed
