Just saw this:

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Cinelli-EXA-handlebar-40cm-26-4mm-w-1-R-stem-9-5cm-late-1980s-USED-VGC-/260928871400?pt=Cycling_Parts_Accessories&hash=item3cc0929be8#ht_500wt_1413

For some reason I like hexagonal handlebars, weird...

Yes thats a 1r stem, 80's era afaik.

The hex bolt type are obviously older, Cinelli versions tend to be very expensive don't see many others. The most common is probably GB spearpoint but alas that is English

Received today:

- Gazelle pantographed bar end plugs

Image

- Campagnolo pantographed chain stay protector. For some reason it's not chromed as i thought it would be. Maybe theres a protective film on top. Need to try to peal it off, but afraid to ruin it...

Good news- I got my Gazelle chromed forks yesterday and started to slowly assemble it. Theres a pic of headset installed with new forks

Image

I'm so excited, can't wait to ride her...

Yesterday I bought this DecoColor extra fine opaque white paint marker for the lug lining. Probably will do trial on my other Gazelle frame today

Right, there are some pics of my trial Lug Lining. Took me ages to do it, as everytime I was starting my hands were starting to shake like I'm an alcoholic. Anyway, I managed to finish it and quite happy with result. I know it's not perfect and you can see it with close shots, but from the distance it looks cool I think. I guess it would me much easier if I apply some sort of a mask, but don't know how to do it. What do you think guys?

I think it looks good. At least as good as Gazelle did it I would think.
