Rear Derailleur cont..

Jockey wheels have been a topic of debate in my head since I realised the originals weren't usable :lol: But getting the right ones I knew would be difficult.. TACX? Bullseye? SRP? No.. They had to be Campy.. As with all good patience, it was rewarded when a NOS set turned up on Ebay, and after a bit of haggling on the BIN price, I scored them..

The back plate was a bit of a mess too, so that needed a rub down and spray of paint to protect it from the elements..

It's a Thing of Bewty :twisted:

I've recently picked up my first ever bits of Campag gear, and have to say that I'm very impressed with it all.

Lovely, if tiresome, work you've done there, but what happened to the frame in the original photo?

Blimey Matt, that's stunning!!!

Always thought an Attitude frameset looks great with Campy components, you must be over the moon with the result! :)

By the way, what was the frameset that the campy kit originally came on?

And a nice black Avocet computer sets it off, how many off those we're lost in the rain and mud? :)

No idea on the steel frameset, I'll clean it up one day and have a better look.. Guessing it's high end Italian steel..?
