Razesa Retro Roadie

I got this frame from francophile a few weeks ago. Original for sale thread: https://www.bikeforums.net/classic-v...l#post21215823

I have acquired some parts and I'm beginning to mock it up:




I'm partial to the look of the Wound Up fork, but it isn't the right size (1-1/8") and is disc only. The Look fork is 1", and I have a Chorus headset for it, but I think it looks a little too "modern". I'll probably put it together with the Look fork while I look for an appropriately sized Wound Up.

I intend to build this with Campy Athena 11 for the retro roadie experience.

Not a criticism at all but

a bit 'busy' with colors

Otherwise a great looking frame and new enough to go with brifters, either silver or black or CF could work.

A fair criticism in my mind. That's another reason I'm not sold on the Look fork, although it is probably better from a performance standpoint. I'll eventually remove the red victory 30 stickers from the rims, but I didn't yet because I'm not 100% they'll end up on this bike, and with American Classic being out of business, I won't be finding replacement stickers anytime soon
