  • So even though I'm not a Londoner or living in the UK, I do check the forum everyday, and because I bought this frame off the classifieds here I decided to post my current project.

    It's a De Rosa Professional, and the frame was made in 93.

    bigger HERE

    In the background there's a Gios Torino from which I will take the athena group off. This bike was also bought here. The frame will be up for sale soon.

    So anyhow I'm in the middle of the project and I am struggling a bit with the BB. I can't find the right size of bearings and ordered a sealed bearing Veloce. Hope that is not too shameful on my account.

    The wheels are the campagnolo Shamal 16 spoke. I will try to post another pic later on in the day.

  • So here is a sneak preview while I wait for the BB and the pedals



    Looks a little predatory in the dark light, like it's gonna try to mug me.

  • belongs in porn imo

  • Looks beautiful.

  • And another sneak preview

  • Sick I have one as well not as sweet as yours

  • Lush..

  • So today this arrived:

    Oh and I've just finished.

    Here's the pedals already installed.

  • Perfect! ;)

  • A bit of elbow grease on the seatpost

    Bigger and also Big

  • this is an italian masterpiece


  • Some of these components are Campag at their best IMO. Those brakes and pedals - absolutely lovely. Spot-on all round!

  • beautiful

  • Fuck that's nice. What bar tape will you be using?

  • Brooks white.

    I Installed it last night, it looks pretty sweet.

  • perforated saddle, perforated bar tape.. goood

  • It's finally FINISHED


  • fuckin wicked! top marks

  • I'd wife that!

  • Very pretty indeed.

  • Seconded.

  • bravo!

  • So here's the finished build with daylight.


    It was hard work, almost 7 months looking for parts but it was worth it, strangely enough the frame was one of the last things.

    Hope you enjoy the pictures, more to come of the details.

  • from now on this bike will be my FAV classic road bike
