The bike looks great -almost Saronni red - and the missus should be as pleased as Punch (hopefully not Judy!!). My only neg comment is that the drops look very deep for a small rider?

Now it just remains to get the good lady out on the road, so she can take the wind for you :D

Very nice and you did a very good job on the transformation.

May I ask where you got the fade tape from?

Also I don't think your Ergo's are Athena as they have a plastic inner lever (original group looks to be early Veloce).

So she been out on it yet?
