Got to say Nick at H Lloyd is the best bet for decals he can make up an exact match of the originals and his attention to detail is amazing

Great build and I'm enjoying following this. Question: in the B&W photos, there are some funky pedals with what looks like the Adidas Eddy Merckx shoes bolted on them. Anyone know what they are or are they something engineered a la Sputnik?

3ttt Moscow Handlebars for the Rossin have arrived! Going to give them a little clean up and polish a bit later. I like the gun metal colour to them, a few small scratches and clamp marks, but all in all I think they're great

Ahhh if only the bars came quicker I would have searched for them then and got them! Clamp is going to be sorted in the next few weeks. I need to pop down to Bristol to see the guy who's doing it, and now we have the bars we can make sure they're a good fit!

Hello All,

A birthday gift came in the form of some Campag Triomphe pedals today - They're incredibly shiny and in such great condition! They came with bianchi straps which I shall replace with black ones. Here is my flickr with a load of photos (taken by the seller) on -

But here are a few snaps:
