• Looks like the Guerciotti is going to be sold. I’m going to miss it’s orangeyness. Thinking of making the Razesa orange now.

  • So I seem to have a collection of headsets, 3 and only two bikes to fit them to. After a lot of indecision I have decided to turn the Razesa Tango orange. Because well there’s not enough orange bikes in the world. I want to try to recreate the Guerciotti’s look, I’ve ordered two sets of decals which I will combine.

    These will be on the down and seat tube, although I think I will only use one front facing on the seattube.

    And I will use the headtube badge and rainbow stripes from this one.

    As for the headsets, I originally bought the CK For the Razesa when I thought it was going to be black. Now it’s going to be orange I want a silver one but just couldn’t find a CK one without buying it New, and £150 is just too much for a headset. Then I have a brainwave: Dura Ace. £80 ain’t cheap but it’s better. So gonna try to get the black CK on the Batavus, which was going to get the Primax. I just hope it fits.

    So stripping the Razesa, will go to Argos next week. Am excite.

  • Well the decals came, and I wasn't impressed. So yet again I'm dragging my heels getting the frame to Argos.

    But I think I have come to a decision. The Razesa ia going to become a Zeus. Razesa actually built a lot of Zeus' high end frames so there should be no controversy. The range of available Zeus decals are much better, and there is the potential to spec it with Zeus kit. Currently considering some very good condition Zeus Pista cranks:

    I'm sticking with tango orange, but revisiong the decals scheme. I am going to use this sort of layout:

    But I want a similar block of white on the downtube bookended by rainbow stripes, so I will discuss that with Argos. I may use a Razesa badge on the headtube though. It does throw the headset choice back up into the air, as it may be an idea to go looking for a Zeus one.

    Any advice very gratefully received

  • IF you're looking for Zeus parts I have some stuff I've been tinking about getting rid of. A rear track hub, some cogs, track pedals, a complete bsc headset and parts of a french headset.

  • The Batavus' final form, having fitted the Chris King headset. Now hoping my hamstring allows me to enjoy it this summer.
