So, been on here a few weeks and finally worked out how to upload pics. So here’s my steed.
Finished this almost a year ago, so it’s not looking quite as fresh as in these pics.
Here are some specs
Frame: 1970s Mexican Windsor Sprint SS
Forks: Random eBay purchase
Bars: Original drops cut to bullhorns
Headset: Velo Orange Gran Cru
Wheelset: H+ Plus Son with Soma Hubs
Tyres: Dia Compe Gran SS
Crank: Campanolo Record 165mm 49t
BB: Campagnolo Veloce
Pedals: MKS GR-9 with MKS Cages
Cog: Surly 18t
Seatpost: Campagnolo Aero Chorus
Seat: Fizik Arione
I really like it. Red, white, blue and silver — and very clean.
I also really like the name.
I can’t decide if I like it or not.
i like it purley because of the seat angle and stem/bar combo.
Yeh, I like it. Not usually a fan of coloured tyres, but the red stripe on the saddle really sets em off. Nice work.
Thanks gents. Have to admit that so much of the inspiration for the build came from the seat. Probably a dumb order of inspiration, but pretty happy with how it turned out. Might base the next build around some dust caps.
I think I’ve seen this somewhere else on the internet. I like the colour combo. Red Tyres, White Rims, Red/White Saddle, white fork and griptape looks insane on that second shot.
did you build this at pista bikes? i think i’ve seen it. nice
Nope built in my lounge room. Most of the parts are from far and wide via eBay.
