Current Stage Info:

Some quick pics taken today after the change.

The current setup hopefully seals the deal on this bike. Quite a bit of changes have been made since the first assembly.

The integralter is lovely but a bit long I think so changed a shorter Richey in its place with compact drop. 42cm as the integralter was.

Lizardskin tape is a great improvement after the cinelli cork tape and the straight seat post shortens the setup even more.

Have been riding with the toupe for a few weeks now and really liking it. And of course got rid of the front mudguard.. ;)

Next up is to see how it performs with bib shorts...

This is a really nice bike.
Rarely see conversions like this. Nothing flasy, simple and clean build. Love the pin up girl haha. Guess its a must if you have that stem :) !!

thanks and it's also a great ride.

about the pin-up, they're pretty rare and had a possibility to purchase one for a decent price so went for it.
planet-x sells them for £99 which is bonkers..

it's the cherry on top of the cake... ;)

they're not only great looking but they also need very little to no service at all because of the sealing.

FFF says:

you can order them from:

http://www.mackhubs.com/index.php?lang=en

and the lead time depends on what's the current situation there. But I'd say it's way over a month..

I bought the wheels used so didn't order them myself. But you should mail them and ask how long will it take them to make the hubs when you order now..

That Cipollini stem/bar may actually be the sweetest thing I have seen on this website. So jelly.

It's a wonderful ride but I also like it because of the rugged looks. It has been used a lot and will be also in the future.

Bought the frame from a friend and using the light wheelset from another project. When it's ready the wheels will go back where they belong and this old horse will get something else.
