Wow!
One of the most provocative (and ww) retromodern bikes. I would remove the wheel decals... of course...
It will ride great, I am sure.

Hey cool! I like it. Saddle position looks right at the BB, which is odd. That weight is astonishing for an MXL frame set actually.

Lovely, I dislike the coloured chainring bolts but I don't ever like them. Great built. Frame looks immaculate.

Gorgeous. I'm currently doing a "neo-vintage" modern re-do of a 2003 Pinarello Prince SL. I love seeing these bikes with modern gear. Such a cool contrast, IMO.

Nice! Love everything except the handlebars....a round or compact shape would be perfect, but I understand that is a personal comfort thing. Nice work! :beerchug:

Dear All,

Many thanks for the positives response of this bike,
Frankly in the beginning I'm tryin to build vintage for this beautifully mxl,
But some NOS vintage parts still not complete,
I imagine very beautiful with vintage looks but the weight will close to 10kg.
So to make it parallel with my 6,7kg pegoretti responsorium bike, I decided to make the same weight with.

@btompkins0112 : yes this handlebar is problem for me !! This 182gr old model too drop for me, will changed to compact one.
The things in my mind to replace this bar is schmolke 140gr TLO compcat or AX Lightness, but the price, price & price..
Maybe the schmolke will be a next thing to bought for this bike..

Cheers,
tara

@NiFTY : Thanks for your comment, the frame comes to me with some scratch, the age almost 20years, I hide some scratch on frame and fork with decals and simply sticker..

That is an awesome weight.

Just wondering, for the zipp rim that you are using, how wide is it? How's the clearance between the rims and the fork and frame?

I'm wondering how's the clearance like for such a old frame with the new wide rims.
