A few frame pictures before she goes off for the respray

A little worried about posting her in a normal frame box, so I built my own courier proof one.
Very much over the top but its better to be safe than sorry!

6 and a half years after starting the project we finally have something to show for it.
Am so happy how it looks and standing next to it brings back great memories of when it was first brought out.
I didn't get it 100% catalogue specific but very happy with what I have.

Excellent restoration job and very interesting post .

Unfortunately I have not seen this post before , so I have read the complete post today .
Mine is an original "team issue" attitude excepting for the tyres , and regarding to the rims is fitted with silver campagnolo Kappa rims .

In my honest opinion , your build with black Thorr rims is much nicer , and looks terrific with this amberwall tyres . Well done :D

Cheers
