The frame is just great!
I would keep my money for a period correct record groupset and a nice set of handbuilt wheels.
The seatpost looks strange...?

I will never go for Dura ace, modern or not, nonsense I know... But the components choice is stronger than me :)
I just think this frame rides and looks too good just to waste it on a historical build...

The seatpost is the original one on the correct paint scheme... Or you were talking about something else?

mate im with nob' your supposed to be italian right ! that means you need a backdrop of of a waterfall
or a villa or better still a bunch of lap dancer's .. not the back of the takeaway ! lol x 8)
seriously though i like the continuation of the paint on the saddle post.
the forks look correct, are they carbon too ?
been after one of these for yonks but my offer s keep getting declined .nearly cracked a couple of
times and went for the giant cfr. :D
no need to ask about the handling robert millar's already done it
