Thanks for the kind comments. I chose the pink bar tape to pick out the pink in the frame but it does not quite work. It looks better in real life than in the photo so I will not change it until it gets dirty.
I disagree with above comments - the pink bar tape is nice and works well. If it was still the mid-nineties, you'd be able to get some lovely Ambrosio bar tape that was a fade of pink to purple, and would have been ace on your Merckx.
Beautiful bike...I'm jealous !
