A new project that's been bubbling in the background has just started to become a bit more real. This has just been delivered...

It took me about 20 minutes to unwrap it as it had been so well protected for its journey here.

It's not been as easy to find as I would have imagined. My brief was fairly straightforward, but it's taken over a year. It had to be this size exactly, it had to have crappy enough paint that I would t mind stripping it, it had to have great chrome and zero rust, plus it had to be this model. Sound simple? It wasn't.
Eventually, one turned up in Italy, and it's exactly all those things. Even the forks are what I wanted; threaded Precisa with no chrome.

The paint is probably good enough to keep if I were to touch it up, but that was never the plan.

Let the fun begin...

These master pui decors are lovely but hard to find in 58cm size sadly...
Good luck on your build as that looks nice

I gave up on the UK market as most were not in great condition. Try looking on eBay and broaden your search to include Europe as there's loads in Italy.
