Let me start by saying this looks amazingly clean for such a vintage bike.
So I bought this same frame (not in the same condition) off CL, Been wanting to make it into a classic fixed bike, what BB do you suggest? thanks

I'd get an Origin8 cartridge in Italian thread, or so with a small (103-107mm) Shimano Italian threaded.....

Thanks. I fiddled with it a while, have it where I want it, and period-correct, with tubulars.

When the red tires wear out, they're gone, and I'll go back to GP4000S. I ran the full-size crankset with polished rings, but finally found a NOS Centaur compact crankset in full Century Grey, so that's what is on there now. Piecing together the Century Grey took a while.

... i believe that... i had a plan to build up a bike with grey campy but gave up after 1 year of part hunting... it's easier to find complete c-record groups...
