New to me Gaulzetti Corsa NEW PICTURES

I have been looking for a Corsa for a bit but could just never seem to be in the right place at the right time. This one came up on eBay(thanks PSA thread!) and I hadn’t intended to pull the trigger but an errant thumb slip combined with a little drink and it was mine. Cue the slush fund scramble to make sure the bike didn’t hit the joint oversight committee, and now we have a near complete bike.

I bought clean39’s chorus group and started the rebuild process. I’m just waiting on a chain, stem and handlebars as well as one more repair part for the shifter.

I wanted to give a shout out to the generosity of the forum members to help me get this going. Clean39 sent me a Campy Ultratorque bearing tool without any hesistation, mayal7 hooked up a campy shifter part at a fantastic price, and Jim d sent a spare Derailleur hanger to match the bike for free despite my request to pay him. I have always loved this forum and hope I can pass along the same help to others in the future. Thanks all hope you like it. I apologize for the junky indoor cell pics, but it’s a winter tundra here so this is what we have.

Looking forward to completed build pics!

Looks cool so far and glad I’m not the only one who has made a bike buying decision under the influence

This is gorgeous. I'd love one of these some day. Not sure how many there are in Australia...

Special props for Chorus 11 - my favorite Campy group for many reasons.

Run it on my two bikes (Canyon Ultimate's) and have two more full Chorus 11 groups stashed away for my "aspirational" frames - one of which is the Gaulzetti Corsa (and the other of which is a Ti road frame).

Some day.........

Beautiful - love how the white of the Chorus group ties in with the frame and the same with the decals on the wheels - very classy and proper..

Looking forward to hearing how you like the ride when you get it finished off!

That's the first use of white spokes that I've ever seen look good. {thumbs up}

I was looking at this one when it was for sal, but got scared off by the steep head angle. When you get it filled up I'd love to hear how you think it handles.

Idk, the head angle is no steeper than my emonda which has to be one of the most predictable bikes I’ve ever ridden. I think it’s going to be awesome.

We should work out a system so paceliners don’t bid each other up!

Almost finished! Just need to cut the steer tube down, but I need to ride is a bit first to see where I want to end up. Clearly no outdoor riding is happening today.
