It's been a long haul but the bike turned out beautiful.
This isn't a glamour shot as much as proof that it exists.
It needs a bunch of little tweaks but it rides great.
I'm going to put the Veloflex masters on tonight.
Shakedown ride tomorrow.

After 2 solid days of riding I am very pleased.
TBH I expected heavy, whippy, and slow.
Not the case at all, for a Superleggera it’s nice and stiff in
the bottom bracket area. It corners beautifully. A straight up
race bike.. a 1978 race bike but it really wants to go.
I fixed the bottle cage and put Veloflex Masters up
for a more vintage look. I’m loving this.
It’s absolutely beautiful in the sunlight.
Next step is getting the NR wheelset put together.

So while sitting around with a beer and looking at this
bike we decided that it needed the downtube shifters installed.
So here it is. Shifts like butter with Chorus 10 speed.

Nice! Which DT shifters did you put on there?

That's a really nice bike. I have to say that I think it looks better with the DT shifters and out the top brake cables.

This is slowly becoming a proper build.
I picked up my wheels today.
Ambrosio Montreal Durex hubs to Polished Chorus
hubs. FMB PR tubulars. Looking killer.
I installed the Old school front brake caliper, looks a little off in this pic though.
That will get sorted.
I hit a small roadblock with the rear wheel.
The hubs are early 2000s 9/10 speed.
I have lost the lock ring.. I was told not to.. whoops.
So I’m searching for a Campagnolo lockring with a 26mm
diameter.. I have 9 and none of them fit..
So the Shamal is still on the rear.

Gorgeous bike ... looking forward to seeing pictures with the new wheels. Once you can completely get 'em on of course.

Proper Wheels and bits.

As promised here are some pictures with a more vintage build.

The wheels are Ambrosio Montreal Durex Rims laced to late 90's Campagnolo polished hubs.
I think they are Chorus.
Tires are FMB pairs-roubaix 25mm. This wheelset rolls like buterrrrr.

Everything is pretty much period correct from the drive train up.
(Crank, FD, RD, are early 2000s Chorus 10speed.)
I can ride it around like this and not tear up my 70s NR and SR crank and derailleurs.

It's absolutely stunning and rides beautifully.. super happiness achieved.
