Fascinating history, so was it just displayed as frame and forks? has it ever been built up?

Would look good with gold plated stem and seatpost :xmas-big-grin:

No it was never built.

I'm hoping I have a plan that works for the seatpost and stem.... not got the frame yet so I'm itching to get started with seeing what's what.

It arrived!

Build shelf filling up nicely, although the gold plated 625g Columbus/Coppi forks are a miss match and need to go on someone else's posh Italian bike... give me a shout if you're that person.

Uncanny...

Not only does it look like the bike, I have the physique of Fred.
