Lovely understated paint job - gives the frame a degree of the timeless.
The chrome 753 forks look gorgeous. I like the black bar tape - it ties in the carbon bits. I know others may disagree, but I think the modern Record sits very well on the frame. If it helps the frame get ridden and enjoyed, that has to be good thing, doesn't it? :D

That series of photos reminds of the film 'Forrest Gump', where the star finds himself in a wide variety of significant places. :lol: I won't say it overshadows the 458, but it sits well alongside.

Definitely a big 'thumbs up', from me.

I have one of these with the original shimano 600 groupset.

sadly the paint was a bit nacked by the time I got mine so its since been powdercoated grey.

the frames really are lovely.

Presumably that isn't the original seat post. If not, was it easy to find another that fit? I have heard that Pug posts were a strange size.
