Thank you all, the plans are just a fresh paint job and hopefully repairing the damage from my sprint fall in the 1994 Canberra to Goulburn classic my clevical is repaired but my Duraace 7400 STI are scraped at the front along with the Rolls saddle, found a saddle on eBay but the shifters are another matter,the bike has had a Campy record crank since the 80s and I would like to take it of and put it away safe for another project and find again eBay, a 7400 crank to make up the full group,I am from the era of walking into a bike shop and buying or have them order it in for me, I am starting to embrace this eBay thing and am hooked on all the retro parts available in Australia with local postage,a lot more around the world but the postage is more than the part!!!!.It's nice to see that people saw that Ive not been on here for a while the reason is that 18 months ago my wife was diagnosed with breast cancer and she has been my focus with her chemo and radiation treatment, she is now well and things are a little more normal. I have been cycling since 1978 and the bike has been a great escape when I need to recharge.

That's fantastic. As an ALAN owner I love these early alu frames and the process that was used to make them. Seeing it coming from somebody's shed/garage/basement makes it all the more impressive. keep us posted on the resto!

Looking fantastic, but not half as good as your good news! Just coming out of a similar experience with my mum and it's amazing to still have her when at one point we were convinced of the worst.

Congratulations!

Now get painting... :lol:

This bike is impressive. Must be very satisfying to have built your own bike from scratch.

Boom, that is stunning. Can't wait for the new build pics. What colour are you going for? Oh and what's the weight of the frame?
