the underside of bb had paint wear, and there is gravel markings on the down tube under side
the colour is like a blue lacquer, similar to the red lacquer used in the legendary saronni red
the saronni refurbs I've seen, be they by argos, or atlantic boulevard amongst others all ways have a metallic finish in the lacquer, as with some blues,
so i think I'll avoid a refurb as the blue lacquer with its natural light and dark areas would be nigh on impossible to do

the front brake cable feels a little short now it's behind, so I will change for one a touch longer, and it will give me an excuse to change the lever gum as it's perished where the cable exits

so , the last pictures, fitted the nisi's, to be honest, I find the black ambrosio's more aesthetically pleasing, I have another two sets, one nos for posh times, and another with light wear for street fighting/racing, so I think I'll cannibalise the nisi's for another build with 1st gen sr high flange hubs, and transplant the other hubs and spokes to the black amb's
pics taken are cleaning these two, with it's descendant, the C50 superlight (still a work in progress :wink: )
thanks for all the views and nice comments


untill the next build!!!
