This is the 10th anniversary for this thread, so I thought an update is in order.
The bike is still ridden all the time and still basically as it was when completed.
A few changes in components mainly due to wear or failure of the originals;

A Chris King headset replaced the original Campy SR, it wore out in record time.

I made this little cable adjuster for the front derailleur.

The 2008 Centaur shifters wore out with no replacement parts available so they were replaced with 2014 units.

The 2008 Centaur rear derailleur pivot points wore very badly, replaced by a Veloce unit about a year ago. Seems 2008 wasn't a great year for Campy.....

Toss in a few chains, two cassettes, tires, tubes and bar tape and it's still a pretty good all round bike.

Still looks great, with what sounds like a lot of time out on the road.
