A few pics of my Colnago Super, that I built up many moons ago (2000 at the latest). I was living at my mam's at the time and, seeing that I built it to look at rather than ride, I ended up leaving it in the attic rather than take it with me when I moved house.
I dug it out today and, much to my surprise, it seems to have stood the rigours of time very well. The frame and forks came, I think, off one of Ray Etherton's old photocopied lists - everything else was sourced pre-internet...some swaps, some from Dave Marsh and some from parts fairs.
It's a mixture of C or Super Record - the exception being an Ofmega headset as I couldn't find a NOS Campag one at the time for love nor money and the hubs, which I think were Ritchey built onto L'Arc En Ciel. The toe clips are Ale titanium and, naturally, the Campag bottle went missing. The rear mech and pedals came off a bike that a pal at work gave me - the mech had two scuffs to the black enamel, which I had 'invisibly mended' by another pal who fixes stone chips and scratches to cars. The rest is all pretty much as new - the brakes were out of a dealer list, where they had been kept as spares...sadly the dome nuts weren't available and I made do with nylocks.
And, near neighbour (at the time) Tim Gould did the spanner work and fettling hence the neat bar tape and overall top drawer attention to detail.
