Absolutely stunning!
And if I ever meet an aardvark, I'm going to step on its damn protruding nasal implement until it couldn't suck up an insect if its life depended on it.

Fab - I'm not a fan of ISP's, but I can see the attention to detail. Well done, very classy.

New poster here, and lover of steel :)

Saving up for Rival shifters for this guy. Portly for sure, but it's still such a nice ride. Might go the threadless route with a carbon fork to save some weight sometime in the future, but I'm not expecting to get this rig below 20 lbs any time at all soon.

I picked up a 1986? Centurion Ironman Master on Saturday, and plan to scrap the current build to restore the group to 7-speed Shimano 105. Gotta love the old stuff.

Though I wouldn't mind a SuperSix Evo...

The orange IR definitely looks even better!

That rear end looks like a modern take on a Curly Hetchins.

Zanconato - Never heard of them, but never mind. Not into rtero particularly, but that's a great looking bike. The fork especially, very elegant design. Centre-pull brakes, a distant memory for me.

Well done.
