Thanks!
But mine is used in rain/snow, so its no spotless such your Bottecchia..
Maybe Il do a restoration of the frame, but afraid of loosing the patina..

My bike is far from spotless, in fact it has touch-up paint everywhere... But im not going to do a full restoration, some patina just adds to the character like you said.

Yes they're C-Record and Athena chainrings fit nicely without modifications. The BB is Centaur (111mm symmetrical axle). Chainline is the same as with Athena cranks.

Steel is real! Though a 39/25 low gear is a bit stupid on these climbs...
