    Great looking Bikes, the De Rosa Aerodynamica Pista is a stunner and I agree that it looks way better with some Patina, definitely don't repaint it :) Not sure if period correct is your goal or not but I thought I'd share some info on two of your campagnolo seatpost. The Seatpost on the De Rosa is a late 80s Chorus Seatpost, a fluted Super Record with 1 Bolt would be the period correct option.

    While the seatpost on the Colnago looks very similar to the one above, just without the fluting, it actually is a later Campagnolo Record model which was part of the 8 speed Record groupset in the mid 90s.

    The period correct option would be the same 1-bolt fluted super record seatpost as the one above. Unfortuantely these are quite hard to find in 27.2 these days...

    Nice score! It reminds me of my bottecchia before the drop bar conversion:

    Good luck with the alignment, given that it shouldn't be a high end steel, I guess your chances are pretty good :)

    I'm still collecting C-Record (mostly first gen) parts for the build.
    I already have:

    • First Gen Rear Mech: unfortunately the 1st gen proprietary hanger bolt is missing. So I'll have to keep searching or mill one of the more common second gen bolts.
    • First Gen Cranks: Got them for free because the crank arm bolt threads are stripped so I won't be able to take it off once it's in place. I'll probably use a cartridge BB rather than the original ball bearing BB that I already have.
    • Cobalto Brakes
    • 25mm C-Record Seatpost
    • Front Mech, 2nd gen from what I can gather.
    • Wheelset: low flange C-Record Hubs with 7 Speed freewheel, silver polished Campa Lambda Rims and Gumwall/Green Vittoria Tyres.... Mmmmhh :)
    • Cinelli 1R Stem & Bars
    • Selle Italia Turbo Special in White
    • 7 Speed Syncro Shifters

    I'm still looking for the above mentioned rear mech bolt (or any ideas and/or other options). And I'm looking for a pair of first gen C-Record Brake levers without the QR but I might just use the Chorus one I have atm. The Headset is also Chorus and I'll probably leave that on for now.

    I'll post some pics soon :)

    Thinking about putting the mechanical cycloometer on the batavus... yay or nay?
