Awesome, I cannot wait to see it. What colour handlebar tape? I am getting a little bored of the white on mine, I was thinking a light purple might be cool...

Oooh, I'm looking forward to this!

While I love my new carbon bike and new-ish relatively light steel bike, the slickest bikes to me are mid-to-late 1980s steel bikes with narrow tubes, low profile rims, and flashy colors. I just love them.

I'm lucky enough to have one in my stable, a 1990 Tommasini Diamante. It definitely is not light, not with all the chrome, but it's a joy to own and even better to ride. The fun part is that when I'm out riding it I'm just cruising, not worried about fitness, stamina, speed, etc. Every time I ride it I'm reminded why I'm a cyclist.
A good day becomes a better day with a bicycle ride.

Bumping this one (I'm sure I'm not the only one who wanted to see how it turned out).

Had it half finished, then had to go overseas.

Will be completed when I get home!

Or are you trying to beat Gumgardner's, 'longest thread without a finished bike' title?

I had one of these and sold it a few months ago having only ridden it a couple of times. It was the Columbus TSX model. I loved it but needed the cash.

I'm getting mega regret feelings looking at this thread!
