Evening folks

Ive hopefully attached a photo of my 1987 Concorde Aquila with a almost complete 1994 Campagnolo Stratos Groupset. The frame was built by Ciocc and is Columbus Cromor. It has the Ciocc signature bottom bracket cut out, Italian flag detail on top tube and race number braze on under the top tube. My 87 date is from studying other online posts of Concorde. The 94 Stratos groupset was bought cheaply off on eBay uk for no other reason other than price! At the end of the day its got a race number hanger and its built by Ciocc but its also 'just' Cromor. If it was a PDM team issue SLX frame then i would have speced the groupset better but it is what it is. The original Stratos shifters internals were plastic and broke during rebuild so i had to source better Campagnolo 8 speed shifters to complete the built.

Dropouts. Campagnolo.
Handlebars. Cinelli
Bar tape. Cinelli (new)

i love it!
it's the same year of my donnay-alan, but it looks so damny modern!
i love that contrast between the crhome&blue of the frame and groupset and that bright red!
you give me a lot of inspiration for one of my old project that i've never finished...
this is a lovely bike!

Thats lovely! Very nice indeed.

Not a paintjob I've seen on a living Concorde.

I'll be passing through Rutherglen on my way to Runcorn at about 0915 next Saturday (on a Concorde) so if you fancy a few miles of Retro-riding, gimme a shout.

Nice tidy example there. I like the green bottle cages.
