I am very interested in this build too, there is a similar frame for sale near me and I am itching to get it. Unlike yours, it only has chroming on the drive-side chainstay but it is a Corsa Extra, probably just a bit older than yours. I've googled around a bit and have had very little luck finding a Tutti Frutti frame built up.

Keep us updated...

Yeah, I'm eager to see this built up.

By the looks of your other two bikes, I'm sure I'll be impressed.

And yeah, that frame is stunning. The colors are great - a bit loud, but still nice as.

Sorry mate.

Ok, so need to put cable guide in on BB - other than that she is ready to go.

Simply a matter of finding the time. Which when you're doing 6 day weeks + riding is tricky :(

Surprises? For this type of time it had better get delivered to each of us personally by a naked supermodel to check out how it turned out.

Must... See... MOAR!

Bumping for pics. I ended up buying my own Merckx tutti frutti (it is in rougher shape than your but it was cheap) and I need some inspiration. I am thinking of an alloy Centaur build with some black Zondas but haven't committed to anything yet.
