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.
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
And another sneak preview
Sick I have one as well not as sweet as yours
So today this arrived:
Oh and I've just finished.
Here's the pedals already installed.
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!
Fuck that's nice. What bar tape will you be using?
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.
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
