Fresh repaint, new decals and 2015 Campagnolo Veloce. Now I wouldn't mind finding a titanium Merckx, hint hint!

Was that the bare frame with a rotten cable guide that was on Ebay around November of last year?
That bike is a beauty. Ride the heck out of it.

Nice work as usual sloar! Love the flat fork crown with the thin points. The silver & black is a nice elegant combo, and the little white accents tie in nicely. Enjoy!

Really looks balanced and purpose built.

The kind that looks fast just sitting there.

As you know, I am a big fan of the silver and the black Campy has never looked much better than that.

Very impressive and a wonderful rescue.

Sleek, simple, and beautiful. What more do you want.................
The simple contrast between the silver and black is so hard to resist.

I think the build looks great, but is there a reason for the non traditional decal placement on the seat tube and use of a threadless stem?

I'm not criticizing, just asking.

Very nice result, especially considering the condition of the frame when you started out.
