Another Vanni Losa (80's Krapf bike) to be brought to life

I'd been watching this frameset since at least 2018. Came out of a collection and was never built. Spotted it as a Losa built bike was hesitant to pull the trigger due to the asking price and what had to be a really tight rear end. The roads I ride are not the best and having a comfortable ride helps. Finally pulled the trigger a couple of weeks ago as the bike lingered a long time and the price kept coming down. Turned out to be one beautiful frame, nicer than I expected.

Just got it back from The Bike Shoppe yesterday. Had then install the headset, face things, etc. Right now I'm thinking of a full Suntour Superbe since I have pretty much everything on hand and the silver parts will look great. Sure do wish I had the old Campagnolo part though.

Mocking it up to check for stem size don't freak over the seatpost inserted to high:

How it arrived:
