Fellas,

I'm trying to get my hands on Campys 57 CSI he has listed for sale. In order to make it happen I'd have to flip my 56L CSI which has been a bit of a struggle to make fit. I normally ride a 58 so hence the need to want to try out Campys 57.

I've owned this CSI since June (bday present to myself) and i had it stripped and built by best mech at my LBS. He said there is not once 'spec' or hint of rust and it has been such an awesome bike to ride. I've easily put about 800 miles on it and it's rock solid.

Durace 7402
Cane Creek brake levers
Giro D Italia bars/stem
Fulcrum Racing 5's
Brand new Gatorskins (28's)
172.5 crank
no pedals
Prologo saddle

Complete bike as is $800 plus ship ??? Let me know if that's off

The definitive, classic Serotta paint scheme. Lovely.

Thanks for removing the temptation. That's the very best Serotta paint job.
My Serotta has the same red and the same yellow decals and it's quite stunning. The yellow's great too.

I would think about swapping it out for Athena or vintage Chorus or some other chrome Campy.
I think it looks pretty nice as is, but you might try yellow bar tape, or even a red, and see if you can't get white or gum hoods. Black tape wasn't really a "thing" back when this bike was new.

It really is eye catching and gets instant cred when I go for coffee rides. The only bike I've ever ridden that gets a comment every single time I ride it.

I personally was not a fan of the paint in the beginning and was contemplating getting it re-painted. The outcry from those I sought advice from was humorous. One individual went so far as to say "a new paint job or touch-up thats anything other than the original red/yellow would deserve a quick kick to the nads"......HA, point taken.

I now have an appreciation for it but if a bike doesn't fit, it doesn't fit.

Yes and yes. IT would look killer on the frame.......as long as you put gumwall tires on the hoops

I've never used downtube shifters. This should be interesting!

OMG must be a young lad! DT shifters rock...did a grandfondo this year with dt dhifters and drew a crowd of 20-somethings asking how they work! Having said that much prefer brifters now that I'm in my fifties..mid fifties!
Enjoy! Think of Merckx!

I knew that wouldn't last long at that price. I had a red to yellow fade Atlanta I let go a number of years ago. Really miss that bike.

Holy cow.....it's amazing what you can accomplish when you show up to your LBS with a six pack of beer

wrapped, boxed, and shipped

If you're REALLY lucky you could be shifting dt shifters by this weekend!!

Now.....has anyone seen "campy man" ??
