Looks fantastic! I acquired a set of Stans rims too, but I think I will stick to Grand Bois rims for this bike. No need to shave off grams from the rims when you have a 500+g Selle Anatomica. Also GB rims nicely compliment the build too.
I have a historic racer in my mind which only will look historic at a glance but will feature new lightweight components hidden here and there. I had the idea when I saw Ralph Lauren's Alfa Romeo in Paris. That's why I'm keeping the Stans rims for!
Black Pari-Motos, Black rims, black spokes, silver hubs. Already have silver Mig70 and Mag180 for Campy. A polished or black pump cosmetically held in place with black leather straps. Black leather bar tapes and saddle... The paint should be greasy instead of glossy, the paint on the car looks amazing imho. I would happily go with carbon Record levers, derailleurs etc... I can use my Campy barends as DT shifters too. I have Tune Fast Foot compact cranks and seatpost sitting at home in Istanbul, and are polished instead of anodized. Must make a list of parts. Any ideas to add? I'm pretty sure a colorcoded rack and headlight would feel at home but then I don't need another randonneur which would not be nicer than my Bishop. A porteur would work though.

The maroonish red one on the left.
Although I photoshopped a randonneur bike, it would be very cool to have a road bike looking this heavy but below 7 kg. Unlikely with the fenders, but painted smooth fenders would make the build complete.
