I think this looks better with the Chorus brakes. If you do upgrade to Delta's thought, the Chorus calipers could go for over £80 which would offset the cost nicely.

Im in 2 minds about the brakes, anyone want to swap with me? Not likely! I'll sit on it for a while, meanwhile I found a bike on FLIKR that had a chainset like mine with the spider arm and left crank painted white with Campagnolo in red letters running down them. Anyone seen this before, how is it done, regular paint, powered coat? Ive attached the photo

just updated my signature....

Inspired by your example, I just been into the archives to put my mis-spelling right too. I don't want to be pedantic, but I think you can edit the thread title, too, if you feel like it!... :)

I have a soft spot for Bottecchias.. Guess we've all heard the Ottavio Bottecchia story, but I'll link to it anyway.. http://velo-orange.blogspot.co.uk/2006/05/mysterious-death-of-ottavio-bottechia.html

Every time I convince myself to splash out and waz a lot of money on something carbon and electric geared, something like this pops up.

Modern bikes just can't have that depth of colour can they?

Those lugs as well. Lovely.

absolute quality, delicious looking machine.

you have to be loving such a result. as much as I think the painted spider works on that Chesini, imagine how gutted you'd be as soon as it got marked or scratched :roll:

Thanks, your are right, I'll be leaving it as it is, truly happy with this now. One point though I think id put Giro D'Italia bars like the ones on this on all older bikes in future as the drop is less than the Champion Del Monde's
