    Not a Look :( When it arrives there'll be a post on here somewhere about it, but until it does not so much.

    I can say it's 1997, steel, and it'll be full 7700 with 7410 headset, seatpost and pedals and some 7700 hubs laced to NOS ambrosio giro d'italias. The rims were decided based upon the new frame, so I'm picking up some spare wheels next week to get something else together just in case...

    Rims excepted, it was destined to be the duplicate of this (which now has 97/98 cosmics on it) for some his 'n' hers silliness; the groupset and bits had been accumulated in anticipation of a 243 in my size, but I completed the set before one became available and I've got bored of having the box of bits so I bought something else to stick them on until the right frame comes along :)

    @hazzus personal question, but how much did Vaz charge for the sweet fluro fade? looking at getting something very similar done and haven't had time to pop down to chat with him yet. Answer view PM if you'd rather! Ta :)

    Is there any point to the period carbon though? It'll all be a bit noodly compared to the more modern efforts and lacks the charm of the equivalent mature-technology steel and alu pieces. Unless it's one of those mental monocoque jobbies, but they still look ugly. Or if by 'period' you mean 2006.
    In other news, I've quelled my period steel urge with something non-Look, so I've stopped the search for a bit. But if anyone stumbles across a sub-€400 KG243 in 56–58 please let me know. You'll get a little something as a thank you.

    @ChainBreaker has one of these too. With the as-per-catalogue ksyrium edition speciales. maybe you should ask him for build advice.
