It's funny how old style frames look so good with modern groupsets!
Well done! :thumbup:

Stunning, do you have a built list? 26mm Syntace Racelite 7075 bars and Mavic Open Pro tubular rims?

Thanks for all the positive comments :D

Yes, I think the Dura Ace looks very good on this frame. I was a bit worried because the crankset. On many steel bikes I've seen the DA cranks are simply too dominant. Because of the gunmetal finish of some of the tubes and the fork the cranks fit very well in my opinion.

Ok, that's a masterpiece!

I am not excited about the looks of the groupset but... ok. Is the tubeset a Reynolds-Columbus mix?

It's a mix of Kaisei, Columbus and Reynolds tubing.
