Please find enclosed my newly completed Gios Aerodynamic. Recent respray by Atlantic Boulevard - photos don't do it justice. I took a bit of license, chosing white panels for the decals over the original silver and dispensing with the horrible 'Letraset' logo with a Super-Record-esque panel on the top-tube. Components are a mix of Nuovo Record, Super Record, Gipiemme cranks and Modolo Speedy brakes. Best fun was sewing the on the Velo Orange Elkhide bar covers. Enjoy:

Just to keep you satisfied - this is the bike in L'Eroica guise complete with Ambrosio Synthesis rims and Vittoria XM CX tubulars - which just fitted and were perfect for the Tuscan white roads.
