I acquired this frame set in, I believe, Forest Green. I'm looking to build it up as an 11 speed.
The options are to put a modern square taper crank on it, or remove the BB and go just go shimano ultegra/dura ace. The only current production square taper crank I can find on the market is the FSA Vero Pro.
It would be great to put rolf vectors on it but I don't know if I'll get an 11 speed cassette on the wheel?
I would also love to find an M2 stem for it, perhaps there is someone on here with a spare??

It has a "Guiltless Gourmet" decal on it, which I discovered was a local US pro race team, so I believe this was a spare that was never ridden, or very little. There's no discernable evidence of use.

Anyway, if anyone out there is interested. I could use some help and suggestions regarding the build. Or to be sold various items remaining. Crank, seatpost, front derailleur, stem, bars and shifters, wheels.

Thanks for reading.
Russ

Russ, well, I am afraid I'm unable to help with sourcing components but I have to say that is a very handsome looking bike. Thanks for posting here. And those Chickens Frames are something else!

But then I would say that.
