custom Colnago build - pictures

I did a build thread on this but here are the final "pro" pics.

This is a bike that combines Italian Colnago with US craftsmen JP Weigle and Jon Williams. The frame is a 1982 Colnago Profil CX with crimped top and down tubes and fully chromed rear socks , head tube lugs and fork. The fork is an aero profile CX. The frame was refinished by Peter Weigle in a soft green color with yellow graphics. I have built the frame with a component group modified by Jon Williams.

Very nice.

the handlebar tape got deflated
was channeling the Darth Vader side of the Michelin Man

i have to wait for the auto parts stores to open to further improve the paint on my Blue Colnago... but I have this rat rod Gios that will probably get built first as the geometry is interesting.
