Build in exactly one month from mid-may to june 2016. My classic-road-bike from the very early '80s. Evertything took apart, cleaned, freshly greased and adjusted. Rims polished till mirror finish, hubs and chrome parts by hand. Total weight 9871,2g (without pedals and bottlecages: 9308,8g). Had a great time in Tuscany (september) and rode it over 700Kms in total. Sticker on the downtube: ROHR Wuppertal Sonnborn I'm always surprised how fast and quick this bike responses. Actually it rides close to my much lighter Look!

Current Stage Info:
After the frame just stood in my room I decided that the Barellia isn't matching the Arabesque groupset and rebuild the Mondial - what a beautiful bike!
A few small changes: the brakes are now short reach ones (with the pull at the right site), the saddle is now a Rolls, swapped for white hoods and mounted some wider and better tires. I also applied a matching groupset sticker between the shifters
PS: Changed the 6s cogs to a 7s NOS one in tuscany last summer and applied some strap plugs (NOS)
Total weight: 10013,2g (without pedals and bottlecages: 9450,3g)
