I built up this Colnago last year and this with the intention of riding L'Eroica.
The seller of the frame reckoned it was original but as from Germany through eBay I couldnt check. Definetly re-sprayed at some point but very good job of it.
I have managed to source mostly Campagnolo Super Record, but hubs and chainset & B/B eluded me. I love the Ambrosio Giro D'Italia rims and want a set for my road bike as they look so good.
Only other part I am not happy with is the seatpost. Haven't found a long enough Campagnolo one for it to fit me yet. I don't think 6'4" riders existed in Italy back then!!
Had a couple of rides around the hills of North Wales on it, and its v nice although old brakes are shocking compared to modern ones!!
But with the crap weather this year it has barely been out so now trying to decide to keep or sell
If I sell do you think would get more by splitting. Campagnolo stuff seems to go crazy on eBay. What shall I do? Enter L'Eroica 2013 so I have a target? Is there anything else like this to aim for?
I am sure it won't de-value if I keep it but seems a waste to have such a nice bike sitting around.
Hope you like.
