    Yeah, they remained to keep Greg happy but will be removed in good time - much easier to keep clean without too.

    Hi Jorn,

    Yes, kind of a Sakura thing. Or...inspired by, I'd say. I did all the art work with an airbrush and acrylic paint and cleared it with 2K Urethane...and a lot of sanding and polishing!

    Incoming... (from Italy, so no doubt quite slowly - I'll be amazed if it lands within the month):



    Master Piu Decor. Something about the name of this model makes me want to run around the house shouting "piu piu" in a high pitched tone whilst pretending to shoot laser guns...

    It's wearing 8v Chorus and Atlanta wheels. It was mainly bought to steal those for another frame I might be buying, but if that Gilco tubing turns out to be as nice as it looks in the pics and the fit is acceptable I might keep it as-is for a while.

    That's going to be a nice bike I can guarantee. You might take the 8v Chorus off, but you'll want to put something nice on in its place. Really I'd just take everything off, clean it up and put it right back on.

    It arrived a whole lot quicker than I anticipated:





    Needs a bit of TLC (cable change, headset overhaul [or possibly replacement], hub adjustment, spit & polish) and there's a couple of derailleur parts missing or broken, but it's not bad for what I paid.

    I currently intend to stick to the 'catch & release' plan, but I am tempted to spend a bit of time sorting the few things it needs and generally tidying it up to make it really nice...

    Those shifters look great. It makes me want to put mine back on a bike.

    It's amazing to me the difference of simply giving it a proper photo can do to a bike. Not to mention the removal of a couple unnecessary bits.

    If the process is more important than the result, you play. If the result is more important than the process, you work.

    From memory, I prefer the feel of them to the 9/10v levers.

    I'll find out next week - got a 10v silver Chorus group landing. Not sure if that will go on this or not, yet...

    I’ve got a set of silver Shamals on the way.

    I think you might mean the gold ones, though? It has crossed my mind... In fact I found a set too, but they were US$2k!!

    It needs shamal 16/12 HPV for instagram and probably something else for actual riding because by the time most of them have cracked at the nipple area from fatigue. I miss the sound mine made.

    They land tomorrow. Bit of a clean-up and fresh decals (he says, hoping the seller was an honest chap), then they'll go on...

    Someone is selling a set of 28h Campagnolo Record wheels over across the hall. That's what I'd put on it and then ride the heck out of that thing.

    They don't have decals. They are screened on.

    I know, but the current graphics are scuffed. I will clean them up, and I have some decals on the way to use in their place and keep them looking original.

    Et voila!:



    The rear is an older model, but they use the same hubs - once the decals are sorted only an aficionado will be able to tell them apart. They’re not perfect, but they’re also circa 25yrs old!
