I just wondered, is that a 1" or a 1 1/8" headset?

This will win an extreme makeover competition if there's any. Superb vision to transform it so radically and update something old to make it really modern.

Gorgeous. Your bike's look with your Lightweight wheels .. best I can describe it.. classic black sports car with tan leather interior. It does't really get much better.

Wow. I can only say what the others have said; a beautiful bike and great work.

Your bike inspired me to get tubbies with brown sidewalls.. so I ordered a pair of Vittoria Evo SC tires for my Ambrosio Nemesis wheels.

Like the others said, the bike looks great. I have to ask though, Lightweights on a Trek 5200? Not trying to stir up a big argument, just wondering why the $6k wheels on a $900 frame (in today's money being generous).
