Two Dura Ace FH-7400 hubs, 32H. Now to scrounge up some suitable tubular rims and a few other bits.

^^^^ I thought nobody was left to develop film. Do you have to set up your own darkroom?

My dad created a darkroom for my mom in the back of our garage (mid- to late-50s). I barely remember it, but remember being fascinated by the equipment AND the process.

So..... the seller made a really careful packaging (fits the German Engineering stereotype) I'm really grateful for it. I apologize for the non-drive side pic, but I only had a few mins to unpack it, shoot some photos and run home, so its still in the workplace garage waiting to be cleaned and screwed together.

I'm seriously thinking about it, at least for film processing. I only need a bathroom for that. I'm toying with the idea of a hybrid approach: shooting and processing the film, then scanning and printing digitally. The last darkroom I had was in high school.

Not bike related, but I'm excited.

I'm not so much excited about the blade, although a Forrest blade is pretty sweet. I'm mostly excited by my recent craigslist find. I've been meaning to get a tablesaw for the last decade.

Turin-branded Eisentraut Limited from jeirvine . Thanks, John! Here's a pic of it only partial unwrapped. It will probably hang there like a hibernating bat until sometime in May or June as we will be in Portland for an extended stay.

A nice deep green B17 Champion Special with copper plated rails. Not quite sure which machine it will sit on first.

From CL, 60$ and included a tin of Proofide.

Thanks, it is the idea, if I ever get there, cleaning and some (further) corrosion preventing job is inevitable. Then the rest, we'll see.. I guess I wont be able to resist a rattlecan paint to see it at least once in shiny red before it starts the "Sleeping Beauty" hibernation until a proper car painter "kisses" it with the right color applied in the right method. Still need to figure out what I want with it in the long run. Somec was so much out of my league until this popped up, that I just admired the pics without ever thinking I could have one. When this appeared in the ads site, I bid without any hopes and the guy responded "you have it", so it all came by surprise, which is good but I was not really prepared for this. But as it is a one time big luck, I have to handle it responsibly, whether I just give it a normal repaint and keep it in this original setup (cleaned), or go crazy and gather all the period correct Italian parts. But that's far ahead. Was also considering to give it to my brother for his 50th birthday, as he is anyway really disappointed to miss a buy on a nice red Colnago Super, but made a check on him, that he never heard of Somec, so I didn't let him know that I have the bike, just showed him pics of other Somecs. He was amazed, but by that time I already decided that he won't get it - barbarian.

Mixed Campagnolo (mostly Chorus 10s) gruppo for the Alan with seat+post and cockpit (which are not for the Alan.) They were so cheap that I would have bought them even without having any bikes.
