A bike mechanic with 12 years experience wouldn't use a Shimano bottom bracket on a Campag Record chainset. Whilst in theory you sort of can you just don't. It's a nice looking frame but I think he should have picked vintage or modern and stuck with that not mixed them. Not worth £1200 of my money.

I agree: a horrible bitsa build on a nice frame.
Modern brakes, Victory chainset, dropouts too short for a singlespeed.
I'm not convinced that's a Record front hub as I can't see lubrication port clip.
