Yes the paint does have a fleck. It looks far better in natural light. When its finished I will take some new pics outside. I ahve everything i need at the minute. I am using a C-Record front mech as I still havent located a braze on Victory mech. Also need the proper white hoods to really finish it. Hoping to get the wheels back from my brother at the weekend and then its good to go.

I have the brakes, handlebars and stem fitted. Just need to wrap them now. Tyres ordered today. I went for the Michelin Dynamic Classic as I couldnt see anythin better for the price..

Finally got the front end sorted out. Bought a Cinelli XA stem from here. It took a lot of work to get it the way I wanted it. Needed stripping and polishing. The Cinelli Logo at the front was missing paint so needed repainted. The rubber insert was not the correct one. Kermitgreen sent me a Karma One. Thanks!

Mounted the Cinelli bars and restored Super Record levers, cables attached and we are nearly good to go......

I've fitted one of those reproduction Turbo white saddles. I think I will look out for an original at some stage....

Just fitted my home made Merckx bottles. Looking pretty good even if I do say so myself. Just the pedals to go and we are done...
