As always Carl, that is stunning. I really love the black and white combo and the components are spot in.
Its O/E paintfinish, never been painted, ive always kept it safe and stored well, theres a little patna to the rear stays, and the odd rub mark, but its pretty clean, all round really.
The paint looks brand new to me! Its gorgeous! Did you follow a specific build for the bike or did you just chose components that would work well together. I love the campag brakes and the wheels, very nice. Couldn't have been easy to find that saddle either....
This frame was originally destined to be refinished in Desert Turquoise, and built with a full campagnolo groupset, to me this is Iconic.
Couple of things stoppped that, The best has been done already,
and then my search for my personal Unicorn came to fruition, these two elements left me no choice but to rethink this build.
The Powdercoat Black just needed a little love with some cutting compound, and then Polish, i saved the best of the decals and replaced the rest.
Didnt really follow a spec build of any sort, other than the theory of
" if it looks right it is right".
There were some difficulties in sourcing some of the parts, the saddle being one of them.
The Brake set is very similar to Campag but are Grafton, i must confess i did use the Campag cable hangers for this, but they will end up getting swapped out eventually for the Unicorns build.
Im glad i finally finished it though, it sat on my work bench for 5 months..
