Just managed to get hold of this Colnago Master Olympic frameset. It's NOS, never been ridden.
After thinking long and hard, then coming across a Planet-X crazy sale, I'm going with Campagnolo Athena 11 speed Alloy groupset.
For wheels I have two sets. One is an NOS Campagnolo Scirocco 20 set, and the other is a set of Red Ambrosio Excellence (36h) that will be laced to Ambrosio Zenith hubs with Sapim race spokes.
I've a couple of NOS Colnago Quill stems (120mm & 125mm), so the only thing I'm missing now is a set of bars. Ideally I'd like to go with Gimondi Criterium bars (44cm, 26.0) or something very similar to that.
Big thanks to oldMuthaRiley for sourcing the Scirocco 20 set and generally passing on his guru advice!
Below are some frame shots, and a few with the Scirocco 20 wheelset just to give an idea.
I can't start the build until I get the bars, and shift either a Ridley Phaeton R or a Pinarello Sestriere, because of the "one in, one out" rule!
In the flesh it's stunning frame....
