My plan is to build it up with Campagnolo SR, so i found a older gruppo with the white logo's (I think that would look perfect)
But i just don't know witch bar/stem/seatpost to use (ideas appreciated)
The wheels are not build yet, but they are gonna be so cool.
When i got the frame i ran in to a big problem. Probably bad research from my part. But i found out that the clear coated 6 13 and some of the System six frames has issues with corrosion. And of course mine had to
At first i would have build the bike like it was, with corrosion and everything. But inside my head i knew i was never gonna be happy with that.
So i decided to strip of the clear coat, and get rid of the awful corrosion.
Here are some pictures
It has been a lot of hard work, but now i am almost done, and ready to paint it, so it can be like new again.

Shouldn't that be Saeco? That, said, I envy you, that frame is one of my alltime favourites!
And good idea majklnajt, build it first, and then decide about stickers. do you have any ideas about the stem/bar/seatpost combo?
I really like this all black look on @masters324, but the weird seatpost not so much
Still could kick myself for not buying one of those System 6's with that natural aluminum/carbon finish ,,,
Anyway, congrats on getting your dream frame, I look forward to its progress and seeing you enjoy it.

Dont know if 6 degree stem angle would visually suit you... and the price for the handlebar is also not very low... But you could paint the cheaper PRO into the stealth version.
If I remember, you ride shallow bars, right?

I saw the Italia edition in real life at a bike show years ago. It was even more extreme than this one with a red chain and some other very cool gimmicks. I believe an Italian company did the paint scheme, but I can't remember their name right now. They also did other team paint jobs for Cannondale sponsored team, like the Spider paint scheme. It's all airbrush.

Or, paint an Easton 10 degree stem into 3T stealth
edit: or paint the -17 3T stem into "stealth".... if you can ride that drop.... or leave more spacers....
I find 2 cm of spacers reasonable looking...
