    Too good. The Vittoria Elusion Neros are pleasant surprise as well, but it isn't hard to do better than the base model Ksyriums that come stock.

    This restoration won't appeal to everyone as it isn't the classic full strip of all the paint and then having it meticulously re-sprayed in the exact color and new decals. It is a bikes from my junior days that I bought ~'85 from a good friend that was moving on to a team with "team bikes" and this was an upgrade from what I was racing previously. I rode and raced this for another ~10yrs. It was "Jackson Pollock-ed" somewhere around '84. There are surprisingly no dents in the top tube for example but it's coated with battle scars. We raced it together at a time when there were two and sometimes three schoolboy races a week and it got laid down a lot. As such these are my stories and for now at least I didn't want to lose the "patina" on the frame. It's been hanging in my parents barn collecting dust with two sets of old tubular wheels from that time. I approached it like a normal restoration and stripped all the parts, deep cleaned them, removed rust wherever it was and tidied up the frame, and chrome especially, but didn't strip the paint. I ordered a new set of proper decals and applied them as the notorious originals were also all but gone which was typical for Pinarellos of this era. I then gloss finish coated like you would over a normal new paint job. Then came time to re-hanging all the parts, putting on a new set of tubular tires, and finishing up the details. I dropped my original Silca Impero off the bench a couple days ago and the old plastic cracked off a few little shards. I'm hopeful for eBay as everything else except for the new tires, tape, wearables are original as it was ridden by me in that period. I also made a modern concession and put on a 13-28t freewheel with 28t bailout. That will make it more rideable on the dirt hills here. I have a few originals including a 13-18t corncob if I think I really want to be more period correct. Hopefully some will enjoy. It was a lot of fun to do:

    Great story, Nat.

    PS, your bench looks well mannered. I wish mine would behave. Any parenting tips to offer?

    A couple of more:

    Beloved GP4. These were 36h and my training wheel on Record hubs. I had 32h Dura Ace AX (their "aero" offering) for racing. In theory they were lighter:

    These old friends got some use. The "T" wrench for the brake levers is invaluable:

    Finally got around to swapping out the gumwall Vittorias for some proper blackwall tires. Caragona tape experiment as well. I think the simple tire swap makes the whole package more attractive.

    Still in love with my F8 after 5 years (or whenever I got it, first year it was released).

    Love mine. I think the F8 design is actually nicer than the F10. They are pretty similar, but the lines flow just a little better on the F8. Still when you get your F10 Disc, looking forward to the comparo.

    Yeah, I am not buying any bikes until I get back below 87kg. This is 4.5kg away. If I hit 85kg, I may get the F10, it will have no disc though !

    Yes. In addition, I applied a thin coat of rust converter before spraying the clear coat. I am waiting for more rust to come, but none so far.

    Rides great. A bit stiff though, except for the flex in the front due to the old quill stem.

    Thanks guys.
