Lovely.

Never seen that Campagnolo saddle before. I wonder if that's their own take on a San Marco Rolls ?

Hope it rides as good as it looks.

Nice bike, neat part selection.

Springs of the WTB Cam are reversed. Might be because of the tire clearance.
Just in case you did not know it.

All the best

Yeah ... I had no idea. Tried to flip them back when someone else told me and the 2.35s wouldn't fit. I have a set of 2.1 reds as well. Might try those. I had planned to use terra ones for the first few rides until I got the setup right, but they'll likely have clearance issues as well.

They are a fancy ti one Campy had for a bit in their catalog. There's actually an air bladder in them and you can inflate them to fit better. Usually more of a roadie saddle, but the fit is very much like a Avocet, Rolls, or Turbo.

Thanks for the info.

Imagine that's a Unicorn these days.

Perhaps one the best looking bikes I've ever seen...

Something, everything about this is just perfect.

Jim, you are working on a whole other level! Great collection of rare parts, pulled together into a unified and appealing vision.

Time to pick our collective game(s) up people! The ante has been raised once again.

Thanks Shamus! Lots of quality builds out there to get inspiration from :)

Haha ... I saw some of those as well. Luckily the ebay seller I got my saddle from was selling a "Campy Eclectic Saddle". I do love ebay auto-correct :)

Like I said ... lots of luck with this one. If I had to build it for real $$$ it would have cost me a fortune. As it happened, it was reasonably inexpensive compared to many of my other builds. Makes me like it even more! I do love a deal ;)
