What is the weight of the fork and frame?
What will the build be?

And you can call me Macktastik Honey Pete Kicks, thank you.
I would put on red Fulcrum wheels. Some all black if you can!
Black bartape and sadlle! Deda bar, stem, seatpost. Classic Elite cages or Patao; or Arundel Mandible oil slick.
Black campy groupset.
Please note, those are just my sugesstions. You can of course build it as you like
Weight of fork uncut 470g with a big metal expander screw plug which i cannot work out how to remove.
I also have this other set of wheels xentis 4.2 clincher dt 240 hubs which may work better than red fulcrum zeros. Stickers are underneath a lacquer so i cant remove them which is a pity. I have seen this frame built up with black wheels and it looks great thats why i went for it in the first place but may go different and have the red fulcrums already which are one of my best ever wheels.
Got frame this morning from slane cycles belfast and i think it is their last available having had 12 in this colour. I was thinking of red headset like chris king or cane creek but they said to go with colnagos own brand headset in black and keep it simple as frame does not need it.
Will probably go with chorus as have super record already.
I like both 3T and deda for the bar stem seatpost. Havent decided yet.
Check it out: the most amazing vintage Colnago, Merckx and Pinarello collection
guess we both have the same color scheme then..

the big expander plug should come separately and uninstalled, that's how mine came with..
it's not easy to remove the expander once it's in the steerer. it grips real tight..
(my advice is to have this resolved by the LBS when installing the headset)
if you're planning to do all installation yourself, just be very careful when you try to remove it since a wrong step may permanently damage the steerer.
I think we are unlikely to meet on the road so if I do decide to go for an identical colour scheme except the wheels i hope you are not upset.
Thanks for the advice on expander plug also.
@irishnago You lucky guy hope you do the right thing with this amazing frame
