By the time you get to inspect it at close quarters, you're already in a world of trouble.

Minor tinkering update.
I swapped the DT shifters for Shimano Ultegra 6500 brifters for a while but didn't enjoy the experience :D
So more or less back to how she now but with 105 5600 mechs and brakes(mainly because they have a tiny bit of yellow on them :lol: :lol: ) and some nice bar tape, oh and a lovely black 3T Cinelliesque stem 8)

Final tinkering :D
I had decided soon after i got the frame that as it was Columbus tubing i'd like it to wear Campag components.
Its taken a while to get all the bits together but shes all finished now, Veloce 9sp brifters, calipers and rear mech with a record front 8)
I much prefer the look of the silver wheels compared to the all black Shimano ones.

*If anybody has or knows of a matching Rabobank bottle i'd be interested :wink: *

Nice work Mike.

I am a relatively recent convert to Campag, having used it on my Basso.

I now know what all the fuss is about.

Yes, nice lugs. I'm really surprised its a 90's vintage frame with that colour combination. Definitely looks much older. I picked orange because I'm into orange at the moment. I think all of the colours would look fine. Are you thinking of painting the lugs a contrasting colour and lining them as per the current paint scheme or doing something different?

I quite fancy getting some different decals done in a retro scole font maybe, but who knows

You've left a bit of your shed under the table.
