Frame was picked up in late 1988 and then built up over the next 12 months with a mixture of Campy group parts. Not that many changes as it's not been crashed and only used as my race bike.

Hope you enjoy.

That's lovely! I like the mix of parts, the Chorus crankset looks really elegant with the C Record mechs - suits the bike perfectly.
..some more pic's would be nice! :D

That looks "just right". Outdoors pictures please? And a shot of the wraparound seatstay detail would be something I'm particularly interested in.

Cheers!
