@KarlC,
Looking great, congrats!
Btw the Dura-Ace groupset looks fine on this build, just leave it as it is :thumbup:

Thx, I'm really liking the Vintage 9 Speed Dura Ace 25th Anniversary groupset, so smooth and direct its amazing.

There are some Full NOS Dura Ace 25th Anniversary groupset on Ebay for $3000 - $5000 so I feel lucky to have it.

Got a great deal on a really nice original Colnago 1" Thread-less Colnago Flash Carbon fork with a 8 3/4" (222mm) Steel steerer, it weighs in at 590 grams.

Not sure that I will use it but wanted to have an original Colnago Fork, to bad it not the all cordon Star fork, would love to have one of those.

IMHO a good match.
Can't fault a Colnago fork, regardless if it's carbon or steel :thumbup:

Cheers

The op'sbike is crying out for a campag record 10 speed carbkn groupset but since you have that shimano 7700 kit i think the current wheels look out o place soe how.

Have you tried hed belgium c2 tubular rims laced to dura ace silver hubs with silver spokes. That would look good.

Hosever these are all pretty bikes. This almost makes me want to go and clean one of mine.

Look SO much better than when you first got it KarlC.

I've just made a few changes to mine like super leggero stem, leather selle itaila bar tape, 2004 Hyperon Ultra's and Veloflex Master tan wall tyres. Love the ride. Great bikes the Masters.

Looking good tids0009, the changes round it out very well !

I would go for a super leggero stem myself if they made them in -17d

I think the Masters need a real small tube stem to match the frame, but so far I have yet to find one in -17d

IMO low profile wheels look soooo much better on a master.

KGT - normally I would agree on a vintage bike but I have to say that the Master in this thread carries the deep wheels well.
