Hi,

As a long time lurker on this forum, I just wanted to share my Bottecchia SPX:

Bottecchia SPX size 59, 1990-ish, original paint and decals
Campagnolo Athena 11 groupset, Athena white hoods, Athena white cables
Campagnolo Record headset
Campagnolo Chorus Aero seatpost
3ttt stem 120mm
3ttt Grand Prix 42 cm c-c
Selle San Marco Regal Ti
Mavic Reflex / Campagnolo Chorus 32h wheelset, DT Revo / Comp
Veloflex Roubaix 24mm tubulars
Look Keo Blade pedals
Elite Ciussi bottle cages

The bike is really a pleasure to ride. Really exceeded all my expectations.:wink:

That is gorgeous, the silver 11-speed Athena kit really suits the frame and keeps the classic look. Very nice indeed.

Love it - a work or art, always a sucker for older frames with modern groups - that is one nice bike

sweet one. Very good job on fitting a modern groupset without ruining the retro charm of the frame

I agree. Not usually a fan of new on old but this looks very nice. I love the frame to bits!
