i kept this frame for about 2 years and it was until last week that i've decided to start building it.

It came to me all wrapped and heavily waxed and it took me some time to remove the wax by polishing it bit by bit....but i loved the process.....

Here are the pics and i hope you will like it as much as i do.

Only the saddle looks out of place IMHO.

Very very nice! But it looks a bit big for you. If you want I'll take it off your hands. I'll even pay for shipping :D

lol, so awesome! I didn't know they were all 1 of 99. Maybe Colnago didn't want to spend the time and money on printing 99 different decals despite the frames costing a million dollars each. Amazing bike btw.

Very, very impressive. Could you let us know how it rides and the weight of the build as pictured?

Oh, and I am jealous.

Thank you all for the kind words.

I love it too much as well. Very glad that everything went according to how i wanted it to turn out.

all italian - right colour groupset - right parts

Kept it aside for the past 2 years as i wanted to make sure i was in the right mood before i start working on it. And last week was a perfect time because my brother came out with a Pegoretti Ciavete (really beautiful. I will find a chance to post his bike) and i felt challenged. :wink:

will be riding this very carefully for sure. Will provide a ride report as well as the current weight of it.

I can post up a parts list if you guys are interested but its all pretty standard fare as you can see. One of our forum member's (maverick_1) 55th Anniversary is insane. that was a really fantastic build.

That is pretty special.

I see that grey plastic barrel adjuster and think a 24k Gold one instead wouldn't be going too far for this build!
