Image1993 Rossin Performance by floody31, on Flickr

Just finished piecing this together. Bought the frame NOS from Brick Lane Bikes mid 2018 after I broke my Colnago, with the intent of just swapping the components, it's never that easy, the frameset fought me the whole way.

Mostly guessing it's 1993 due to its 1993 Lotus-Festina paint job. No markings on the frame except 'M G 2' on the steerer.

Future improvements planned include a suitable 1" threadless carbon fork e.g. Look, maybe a set of Eubios bars, and some H-Plus Son TB14s. Maybe when I have had the downtube replaced on my Colnago, I will swap the Campag back over and build this up with Dura Ace ala Festina.
