Sure it'll look rinsin' with an Edwards signature build. Deltas would indeed look the business although the frame is clearly a touch modern.
I remain conflicted about the build as I often lack patience and, despite probably not riding for months yet, will want to see this finished and the Jay-Z/Linkin Park mash up build is always popular with me.
I reckon I still have three options:
a) Early 2000s alloy Campag with Ergos. Only groupset I have seen so far is 8 speed Record at 500 euros which is a bit strong for me. I do have a couple of pairs of period correct alloy Record cranks though.
b) Find a complete C Record groupset with Deltas. Not period correct granted but as it's steel frame and forks with an inch heatube not so desperately out of keeping. On balance reckon I prefer this to option a)
c) The Edwards/Woolworths pick'n'mix. This obviously has it's appeal and would only need to look for Deltas as have Record cranks, 7400 rear mech, some sort of Campag front mech, Record aero brake levers, a range of wheels (silver rims? Black rims?), Simplex downtube shifters. It would get me up and running quickly plus I could swap out for a Campag compact chainset for hilly rides/sportives. But, in reality, probably too much of a lash up.
In conclusion therefore, option b) is probably the one.
Touch small though perhaps??
It's actually the same top tube length as the Merckx (and no, that's not too short as well
) plus has a slightly longer headtube. Still, when I build it up and realise it's too small you'll have first refusal
