Hi, here's is my beloved ride and first build (not considering the Raleigh Pursuit I did for my lady). Bought in Italy with a mismatched campy/shimano groupset I have rebuild it with same year (I think!) Chorus groupset. The paintjob is not at its best and I was about to powdercoat the frame but then tried to retouch it myself and by the time I relized that my skills were too poor to do a good job, I was too fond of the color scheme to go lose it.

Beautiful, the colours are spot-on and it's nice to see a decent outdoors picture.

Agree with the above in that it does look fast standing still.
Ride and enjoy
