Just taken delivery of this
I liked the look of the brake bridge and internal cable routing and also fancied something Italian.
Initial careful scraping seems to confirm what Tel thought: it's all chrome under the paint!
As it's in need of a respray anyway I'm going to get to work with the Nitromors (unless anyone has a better idea) and assuming it is all chrome I'll keep it like that.
I need to get some good clear photos of the decals done, which I'll have reproduced in red with a thin yellow surround. There are too many for my taste at the moment, so it will just have the head tube logo, seat tube decal, similar vertical lettering on the forks and Snr Olagnero's signature on the top tube.
With the Columbus decals I think this will look classy without being cluttered and show-off the chrome to it's best effect.
Groupset will be '95/'96 8 speed Campag Chorus (need a rear mech and chainset), but I'm undecided on wheels at the moment.
Fingers crossed for some shiny chrome photos in the near future...
