Congrats for your bike OP.... finish it soon
Ultra, I missed responding to this earlier -- I did not know that, but luckily I had the framebuilder take out the rear brake bridge, spread the rear dropouts to 130mm, put the brake bridge back in a little higher up, and then check the alignment. Groody only did the powdercoat for me.

It's the first bike I've had coated or repainted. With the clearcoat over the powder, it's an awful lot like a wet paint job. I'd go with them again if I had the need.

It also scares the ba-jeebus our of me that ‘87 was over 30 years ago!
Seriously, right? I bought this in high school. I don't feel that old, but the years do accumulate.

More pictures later, but here she is just in time for Eroica California 2019.

Stoked about this bike. Just about everything is set up the way I wanted it. There's clearance for fat road tires -- Challenge Eroica/Strada Bianche tires on TB14 rims. Ultegra 6600 hubs, which I like the looks of. 46cm shallow drop bars, with a Nitto UI-12 quill stem that still fits 31.8mm bars. 34-48 x 12-34 gearing. A Ti seatpost with a graceful curve that echoes the curve of the forks. Black bar tape with celeste stitching in it. Flite. Etc., etc., etc.

Dang. There's something about the extra negative space that the larger sizing affords that frames that era logo so well. Gorgeous.

Well you should be chuffed to bits. That is gorgeous and I look forward to seeing it in action this weekend.
