After a lot of reading on the forum I thought it was time to show my old-new bike. It’s a Wilier Cento that I didn’t ride as much as planned last season. Since I’m a student I didn’t want to spend money on buying a new bike so I had the frame sent to the Wilier factory and repainted as a 2009 Cento Uno. I cleaned all the parts thoroughly before rebuilding the bike and put on a new chain and cables/housings. The bike really feels and looks like brand new again, which was my goal with the project. The bike hasn´t been put on a good scale, but the weight should be about 7kg.

Big thanks to my LBS for making the repaint/rebuild possible!

Spec:
Wilier Cento 2008
Campagnolo Record CT 10sp
Fulcrum Racing Zero clinchers
ITM 101 stem/bar
Ritchet WCS seatpost w. Selle Italia SLR XP
Look Keo Carbon pedals
White Hudz/Fizik bar tape
Tacx Tao Carbon cages
Vittoria Open Corsa EVO CX

I have the same frame. It is fantastic!

IMHO though you spoiled a limited edition centenary frame. Why?

Beautiful. Perfect. If you don't mind me asking, I'm curious how much the repaint cost?
