  • Picked this up last week from a collector of all things Italian that I know.

    From what I’ve found out online (not much) these bike are not very common and only built for a short while. Unfortunately the decals had mostly rubbed off when I got it and there is a few scratches in the paint, luckily no dents or dings.

    Since I picked it up it’s been stripped of it tierd and worn 1055 Groupset, touched up many scratches in paint, removed remains of old decals and polished and waxed the whole thing including the chrome chain stay and fork crown.

    The plan is to build it up with all the bits off my current Specialized secteur comp.

    So spec will be.
    56cm x 56cm Columbus Aelle F+F
    Shimano 5800 crankset + brakes
    Shimano 5700 Brifters, FD, RD
    Tange levin NJS headset
    Deda quill adapter modified to fit lower
    Oval concepts wheelset
    New Schwalbe Durano 25c x2
    Compact drop 38cm
    Specialized toupe gel saddle
    New cables all round

    All I need to source is new seat post as current one has been scored badly and I can’t trust it and down tube cable stops which I should have next week. Eventely new decals from H lloyd will be added.

    Here’s a few pics I’ve got so far.

  • Love it. Particularly like the seat cluster and the fork crown detail. Lovely frame. Clearances are nice. Just looks "right"

  • Thank you. The bike has some nice details, like fully enclosed top tube brake routing, the seat cluster and hearts cut out in top tube and down tube lugs.

    Well today I have installed the brake calipers. Also cut steerer down and added new bearings and Teflon grease in headset. Installed adapter and stem. Just need to chase and face BB then can move forward with the build. But there is no rush in this one. (Pics to follow)

  • Lovely. I'd put all silver, white tape and saddle

  • Thanks. This is the donor bike for parts. So will be all black, but I think it will look good.

  • Also head tube decal has been ordered from H Lloyd. Should be here by the weekend.

  • Head tube decal arrived from H Lloyd. Really like the info sheet that comes with it :) Also cable stops didn’t turn up, but found a pair of shimano ones in parts bin.

  • No quill stem ?

  • I’m torn between quill or ahead adapter. If I go quill what colour do you reckon? Silver or black quill? Group set and wheels are black. But seatpost and headset is silver?

    Always match the seatpost.

  • Silver matcha with lugs ! Really like the frame and black 105 looks great on neoretro

  • I would have a look through parts bin and see what I can pull out. I’ve got a 3t mega chromix on my Peugeot but think would look out of place on this build.

  • Yeah think I might run a quill and I think black 105 will look brill on this. I’ve had the BB chased and faced today, so just need to strip down my Specialized now for parts.

  • Silver quill and seatpost and black groupset will work .

  • More silver the groupset will overkill the bike .show more off the vintage thats the whole point off neo retro

  • Regret selling the concorde :-(

  • Want to see if I can get the same cage in silver but with the red shock instead of yellow for matchy matchy points!

  • Bars have been cleaned and stealthed. Also tried the cages on frame and silver is the winner so that’s staying on. Just need to find a stem now.

  • Stem located and with me. Cinelli 1A 115mm stem for the grand sum of £5 :)
