    A Flite wouldn't be period correct for this bike, which is the aim for this build by the looks of it (it's looking ace by the way!)

    Do you have a white Turbo laying around Reinier? Best to mount and judge.

    Right, headbadges have been applied too now. Only need to sort the details with some black paint and paint is done.

    Finding two C-Record headsets has been harder than I thought. If someone has a spare he's looking to sell, please hook me up :) I've been offered a couple of Chorus (with a chamfer on the cone/cup) headsets from people confused about what's what (the differences are small, that's true).

    Shame they're integrated so poorly in this frame...

    Ooff, impressive amount of NOS material there. This will be good, looking forward to bigger images ;)

    @Tijs Yess, 650c front. Wheels will be Wolber TX Profil on Campag Record hubs.

    Pretty sure there are Flites out there that will match this shade (looks close to GIOS blue)

    Very nice! Looks early nineties. What's the tubing on this?

    That's just beautiful. Love the paintjob and matching forks on this, fresh! I would never touch that to be honest, it really makes the frame something special.

    Great build :) a blue flite would look mint too.

    Gah. And there was me thinking I'd done a period correct build!

    Frame now resides in New Zealand.
