I have a 24 1/2" greenish Pro frame and fork I got from a buddy who bought the bike complete in order to sell off the Campy parts. No hurry to build it, but it will take the place of the blue one I sold years ago to a collector.

I want one!
Not mine anymore, but what a great riding bike!:
My bike is cooler than me.
Man, all Pro's appear to be giants so far, pretty though.

Yup! Even canvas bar tape too.
This one is new to me. This is the before picture. I have stripped it down and started to reassemble it. I should replace the rear rim and not sure if I want to keep the tubulars or convert to clinchers. I will swipe some wheels off another bike until I decide.
was nice while I had it, now sold.

"I've consulted my sources and I'm pretty sure your derailleur does not exist"
Mine has been hanging upside down waiting on me to spend money for some longer reach brakes and levers, a crank, and a front derailleur to return it closer to stock. It might be a income tax check build early next year, done in time for Spring.,,,,BD
Here's the "get it up and running" build.
My August 1976 Mk IV. It remains a mystery to me as it's got the proper Blue Mink/Silver paint under the one you see - a lighter shade of blue. What you see looks much more like the darker Steel Blue that they put on the Mk Vs. No sign what-so-ever that it ever had factory decals but the stock Mink Blue is where it belongs (the original paint was never stripped off). All the lining looked like the Worksop hand, I've over lined it as much of it was missing. And the HT lugs are Bocama Super Professional long point lugs - never seen them on another Mk IV.
No collectors item, a rider and I love it. Great bike. I'm very luck to own one. Great thread too!!
