Finally built her up last week and was able to snap some shots this weekend. She's been built for some time now, but I didnt want to post pics until every last detail was in place.
Even so, there are a few things that are still on the way or in the works to make this beauty queen even more glamorous. But this will do for now.
Frame and fork: Colnago
Shifters: Ultegra STI
Front and rear deraileur: Dura Ace
Cranks: Dura Ace
Pedals: Crank Brothers Eggbeaters
Brakes: Paul Neo Retro front and Touring rear
I am considering swapping out the saddle.
Also the stem is pretty sweet, I think its an ITM, but I just bought a pantographed Colnago stem that will be even sweeter.
Another item I have that I was able to find was this sweet Colnago bottle cage. I think they are fairly rare as I only ever seen a picture of one other. They were probably $3.95 back in 1981.
This one has some chipped paint, I'm considering a repaint, but I want to save or recreate the Colnago decal first.
Just as a flashback, here is what the frame looked like when I first got her:
And the finish again:
