It was a total pleasure working with you and I hope this baby gives you many happy days and a full recovery.

This is a genuine "shout out" & "thank you" to Mike & all at Blacksmith Cycles in Toronto. Such a wonderful place and person to work with. Full of passion for the sport and bikes and all round stand up human being. Mike & to all at Blacksmith family, thank you for your patience, kindness & love...

I live half way round the world but man this is my LBS

Thank you everyone on this forum too... too kind with your encouragement and man makes me feel proud to be part of this community with all the positive vibes... sometimes we do bicker and bitch at one and another but really all in good fun and faith!

Thank you to the boys at Festka & Berk for their patience and fantastic work too!!

All in all while recovering this project really took my mind off things and got me looking forward...

Can't wait to receive it now to plague this community with my awesome photography skills ....

Stunning bike and stunning story. I think most people probably look at your bike collection and make some judgments. I have a feeling you realize just how fortunate you are - which makes your collection even that much more special! :thumbup:

Congrats on a successful surgery. Sincerely wish you good health to enjoy these lovely bikes!

I would switch it up and try the Corima MCC S+. You already have a stable full of LW's.

What groupset will grace this beauty? Please say campy

+1 for the Corimas. I think they'll match the frame better than the matte Lightweights could.

+1 for the Corima set, it would be nice to see something different. I hope you have recovered nicely, as I am all too aware that your surgery is a tough one. I work in a Cardiothoracic surgery ICU and have experience with this surgery and it is NOT an easy one. I would LOVE to see your photo's.

I know it's a bit old skool now but I'd love to see dura ace 9000 mechanical on it!! I think it would suit the colour scheme really well!! And +1 on Corima wheels over lightweights.

Great story - really love the text on the seat tube. So about the wheels ; totally black Bora's with no decals would be my choice. But that's not the choice -> Corima it will be then. :cry:

+1 on Corima.
They will match the modern-pop paintjob better IMO.
