Faggin Project Pictures



The Faggin is done.

1983 Super Record, Ofmega Super Competizione crankset, Cinelli hexagonal bars, Concor saddle, and Modolo Speedy brakeset.

Fantastic ride, smooth as glass. The driveline shifts flawlessly.

I decided not to have the frame repainted at this time.

Edit: sorry looks like the post is a month old .. just a coincidence it was the first of may.... no one ever commented... strange

Those bars come up on ebay once in a blue moon, I've run across maybe 2-3 in the last 6months or so.

The bike certainly is a beauty and and sounds like it rides as nice as it looks.

That tape on those bars is amazing looking. Is it actually comfortable though?

That is Faggin' gorgeous.

My Bianchi came with Modolo Speedy brakes, which I like better than Campagnolo of the same era.
