Looks awesome, very simple and elegant. One thing I have to say though, is that the cranks don't fit in at all with etap, why did you use them?

Yes I know! :)
Actually I fitted Extralite silver cranks, but no matter how hard I tried, I could not get it to work with the eTap FD. Problem was probably the low Q-factor of the cranks. The crank arm scraped on the derailleur.

So these cranks were sitting around and got called up for the job. I have some THM m3 here ready to go, just waiting for the BB to arrive. I will repost when I fit them! Fitting Sugino ev110 chainrings to the m3 cranks, for something out of the ordinary.

What's wrong with SRAM cranks? Nothing on the bike is heritage or classic, it's modern steel. Silver cranks not only look out of place in the basic aethetics but also do not match the overall feel of the bike.

Ready for the summer with new tires because the Veloflex ones were too flimsy for bad roads. Applied Aquasure to keep them as new. Also switched from a 13-26 to a 13-29 cassette because I'm not getting any younger...

It is a clear coating recommended by Dugast to make cotton sidewalls water resistant. As an added bonus the sidewalls stay almost as new...

Sure are, well, the Fulcrum 5 LGs. The stickers on them look dreadful, plus having the spoke nipples matching the frame is neat.

Heres my lovely '86 Merckx Extra Corsa. I recently moved to Germany from Australia and found this in Munich. I had my heart set on a Basso Gap of the same era but just missed out and then came upon this.
It's a little bit big for me but I made it work and I only use it for scooting around down or to the nearby lakes etc and it's just so much fun riding it!
The colourway is quite beautiful I think, its got a noce pearl effect to it and came with a complete Dura Ace 7400 gruppo which is works like a dream.
It has a fair share of battle scars but adds to the character I think so I will leave it like that. It needs new cables, bar tape and a general tidy up but atm it's great the way it is.
I did abit of searching on the interwebs and this colourway is from Team TeVe Blad, I haven't been able to find much else about it however.
