That's great.

It really needs some nice black components to make the yellow really stand out 8)

Love it, and yes black group set would finish this off nicely. The paint job should be the highlight - that is wow factor

cheers all - i had the exact same idea for the build which will be:

Headset: Chris King Black sotto voce threadless
Stem: ITM millennium - Black
Bars: Deda newton shallow (black)
Tape: Brooks black leather
Shifters: Campagnolo centaur carbon
Cables: campagnolo black
Calipers: campagnolo centuar (silver :oops: )
Cranks: campagnolo record carbon square taper
Rear Derailleur: Campagnolo centaur carbon
Front Derailluer: Campagnolo centaur

Seatpost: Campagnolo Record carbon
saddle: Selle italia turbomatic 2
Hubs: campagnolo record black
Spokes: DT swiss revolution black
Rims: campagnolo omega black
tyres: Mavic SSC

frame is fillet brazed , weighs 1700g

not sure of the TT decal yet but on the fork crown it's a landshark panto.
It also has a tt decal with a shark head, american flag saying "smell the bacon..?"

Picked up the frame this morning - looks in good shape!

The top tube decal says "Il Vecchio" which was evidently a custom bike shop in Seattle, America.
Tonight will see me do the following:
Fit the headset, stem and bars and "mock up" the rest of the bike.
Then a roll around the cul de sac :)
