parts that have already winged their way through my door over the last couple of months

NOS Chorus cranks and front mech
NOS T.A. blue chainrings, Festina team issue
NOS Chorus 9 sp ergo's and 3TTT bars
Flite Ti saddle, Look Ti stem and Syncros Ti post

maybe that's enough titanium for one build

this is turning out to be one of the most fantastic road builds I've seen. EVER I can't wait to see it when it's done. I can't imagine where you're getting all this team stuff from.

I agree, this is going to be one fine build when complete.
Keep the updates coming, I'm sure you have more than a few people watching with anticipation 8) 8) 8)
