Well here it is, i bought this way back when...sold it to Beaker....and now it's back :?

What to do....I'm thinking shiney silver stuff against the nice dark metallic blue. This is going to be a rob Peter to pay Paul type build so let's see what happens...........here it is as a frameset with Tioga stem and Control Tech Easton Ultrafragile errr Ultralight post...

Ahhh, the holy grail of DB's.
I raced one of them bad-boys for about 2 seasons. One year fully rigid, one year with Pro-Circuit sus forks (identical to Manitou's).
Mine had full LX, with the black cranks and mechs.
A beautiful bike in the making there...... 8)

sorry for the delay folks....MadCowKev chatting on the phone for the last hour or so....on go the cranks, Toplines with Middleburn rings 24,34,44 all mounted on a UN71. Skinny and shiney, just how we like it!

For those that are interested, the integrale pic is one of 4 that were done for the classic car show (as a backdrop to the Lancia stand) at the NEC way back when, Integrale, Stratos, Aurelia and Fulvia. When they came up for auction at the following AGM I got the integrale and Stratos.
