Work in progress, frame stripped of most parts to attend to paintwork ( before and after pics below )
Nice drilled out parts, nuovo record groupset.
could use some new DT decals, simple script "Mattolini Corsa' in navy with white edges...anyone?
:)

thanks guys :) ^^^^
I'll post a full set on Flickr when the toeclips and Bindas are on ...
Took her for a 25 this afternoon, lovely thing, need some fresh BB bearings to feel snug... stem a tad short for me and i ran out of seatpost extension but not going to mess with it, changing parts.

Anyone remember those suede or leather sleeves you could slide over the brake levers? drillium is not comfortable!

Looks great the touch up respray is spot on as far as I can tell great job looks like a nice ride! Some more close ups would be great if you have the time. A refurb worth being proud of.
