Hi Jsinclair,

Its just a hobby of mine. I have enough 'nice' bikes and when I see a nice frame I buy it and build it into something that I think others will like. At the moment I really like the old Italian Steel frames, but with modern components. I just thought this one looked superb??!!

Lig.

Never thought I'd say this, but Lightweights seem to look good on pretty much every bike.

Awesome bike! I'd slap some Ambrosio rims wrapped with tan sidewall tubulars on it.

Thanks for the responses guys....

eurperg - I know the ergo bars seem to fit with the modern feel and the compact cranks, well they seem to be the more popular choice for new bikes.

veganeric - Now that would look nice.....!! The bike for sale has Pro Lite Como wheels, kind of entry level so someone could spend more on a nicer set of hoops if they like.

lovely frame - needs white cloth bar tape and silver levers with white hoods for my taste to match the rest of the build
