kudos!

the frame/fork/seatpost are the toughest parts of this build as it's a mid-90's build, it shouldn't be too hard to source the parts if you're going period correct.

I have to admit I thought it could go up to $1,300.... that´s optimism for you!

Well done Tony.

Certainly a departure from your norm. What are your plans? Will it be a rider and will it fit ?

Don't what to do. Garage Queen?? The problem for me is when i look at the pictures of hemmings riding it. I hate the spokes, front fork, crud guard & the chain stay thing. Looks like he had Onza HO pedals. Just sold my lot of them :roll:
So sorry people wont be built as he had it. As every time i went home and see it i would hate it.
Just have to wait till the beautiful frame arrives :)

This will stir a bit of controversy..... I have what I am convinced was Francesco Moser's personal track frame from when he first came to Mexico and tested the Velodromo Olimpico, the frame is 56.5cm ctc set tube and 57cm ctc, if your name was Ugo de Rosa, and you were going to build a frame for Francesco (1.81m tall) branded under his new bike company, what size would it be?
