Looks like there are bikes all over your gaff :)

Just curious what you did with the Shimano Dura Ace first gen front hub ?

Thanks guys

Its still a while till its completed...

Having some dramas finding the correct era Fiamme pista rims to build the wheels up...


If anyone has any Fiamme trapaziodal pista rims in 32 and 40h please let me know...

Yeah got a couple of projects on the go at the moment... Other Bike in the pics is a 1985 Pogliaghi Intercorsa pista


Cheers again

Adrian

Way back when I had some Fiamme Pista / Track rims. They didn't have anything like a braking surface to which brake blocks would fit.

Are you thinking of fitting a brake ?

Thought I saw a set on Hilary Stone...

Shaun

PS Dura ace hub?

I've got an old 40 hole fiamme tub rim (laced up onto a Philips fixed/fixed hub) that could possibly be what your looking for?? If you can't find a pair.

Although I think Vintage Bike Cave had a pair, not sure if they've still got them?

Lovely bike, looks like the chrome lugs responded really well!

A lovely looking build!

Looking forward to see the result, and thanks for sharing with us.

I think this is pretty much my favourite bike anywhere at the moment, what a fantastic find. The patina tells a story in itself, i love it as it is. Regarding the rims would NISI have been an option? Any ideas on what tyres you plan to use?

Unfortunetly I have been moving house over the last couple of weeks and haven't been able to get much done on this build.

I have found a front Trapazoidal Fiamme rim but not a 40H rear.

I have the bars and Stem ready to go and will be taping them Up tonight.

I am using D'Allisandro Tubulars which are a good reproduction of the correct era Tubular

Here they are stretching and Curing

Starting to take shape nicely :) The tape looks good, quite a bold colour fresh out the pack, with a bit of natural age that'll look great, i wonder what the original colour was?
