A few pics of my Joe Waugh. Built on a budget and with an eclectic mix of bits. Not exactly sure of the year of the frame, think it is mid to late 90s.

50cm frame in Reynolds 653, with 653 forks. Just the right amount of chrome IMO. :)
Wheels are Mavic clinchers on Campag hubs, cannot recall the exact type but they are nice.
Rear mech is Dura-Ace 7 speed and block is a NOS 7 speed Dura-Ace 14-23 I sourced from the US
Front mech is the most modern component on it, a 9 speed 105 (sorry, I will get a Dura-Ace one soon)
Brake calipers are single pivot 105
Saddle is NOS Concor Light and it sits on a beautiful Dura-Ace post
Crank is an Ofmega Record copy and the bottom bracket is a sealed Edco
Bars and stem are 3T (125mm stem)

I also have a pair of race wheels with Mavic GEL330 rims on Record hubs, with a 7 speed 13-21 Dura-Ace block.

A bit of a mix but everything works really well together and the bike rides beautifully.

I like that a lot. Seat & chainstays are nice in chrome. Along with the fork they really set the bike off. My untrained eye wouldn't notice the eclectic components.

Good work!
