Thats a very, very cool looking build.

You'd probably be able to make it work with a carbon gruppo too.

It looks the business and certainly looks like it was designed that way. Really nice, great build.

thanks i wish that you all could have a wee shot of it the ride quality is the best ive experianced
in a long time
ive been looking for something like this for a long time and stumbled across this in abox in a clients
garage
he had a collection on flying scots and we got talking he showed me this frame he was going to build it up a few years ago but lost interest it was love at first sight
imgoing to purchase a set of shallow wheels for it as well i can post pics and have an opinion poll to see who like what best thinking of miche to keep the italian theme going
the gianni motta life story is quite interesting as well and his steel frames are becoming pretty rareso feel pretty lucky to have found this

Very nice. A great choice of components, and lovely mix of finishes with red and black paint, and alloy and chrome.
