It was about time but alas life got very busy and nothing further happened. Now though I have just placed the order for what I think is the remaining parts to get this build finished. Looking forward to getting it done!

Will document the rest of the build here.....

:D coming along nicely eh....

So this is how it has remained for the last few months, hung in the shop looking pretty but aching to be complete:

Image

As I said above I ordered the remaining parts needed to complete the build so today down she came (since when did I start referring to bikes as "she"!?)

New Campag Record 12 - 23 Cassette:

Image

Image

Thought I may as well stick some alloy presta caps on there too:

Image

And to more exciting stuff; Campag Chorus seatpost (not perfect condition but pretty darn good) and a new Selle Italia Flite 1990 saddle:

Image

Image

Image

Cinelli XA stem (120mm) and Giro D'Italia bars (I think) with double grooves:

Image

Campag CDA Delta brakes with polished and engraved covers (been aching to get these on) - need new blocks, think I have two already:

Image
(terrible picture!)

Image

Image

So this is where we're at now. Got to polish the levers and cable it all up and it's very nearly done. hopefully the next instalment won't take me as long to do as this one!!!

So nearly there:

Image

And a change of location in the shop too:

Hi Tel,

Good to see you have a little time to get a build done - and it really is a high class one - I love it. My only criticism is the change of the headset - your trademark 600 got binned!!! LOL

Hope you are doing well and you get a little time to complete this and ride it before the great weather leaves us.

Richard

p.s. a couple of guys who know their bikes had a ride on the Van Tuyl and loved it - they were really impressed with the weight and handling. Tubs might be going on it in the near future - should prove interesting.

Little more progress and I hope to get if finished'ish tomorrow!

not sure how these pictures came out until I have them up on here:

Levers are Veloce, I had Record but they were to poor a state to recover, aesthetically though I actually prefer the Veloce with the slots and engraved logo so not all bad.

They were a little scratched up though so I gave them a polish to match all the other components:

Pre polished:

Polished:

Image

Hoods were a mess, so on go the genuine new Campagnolo hoods which made a huge difference to the overall look:

Image

Image

Image

Fitted awaiting cables:

Image

Image

That's as far as I got as I realised that all my downtube guides were still at home and I could not find my 3.5mm allen key (also later found at home!). The new KMC chain is on and the cables are kinda in place, just got to finish the cabling and tape it and I'm there!!! Not sure on pedals yet though.....
