    Top of the line in the early 80's. Chrome lugs on early ones. Full Super Record, panto stem, post, levers, and chainring. One of my alltime faves.

    Bellissima!

    The decals and lugs look very much like mine, but I have the more basic tre tubi frame, Ofmega cranks, and NR derailleurs.

    Nice looking, however, 19 pounds? I cannot see how. My TSX UL weighs in at 21.5 w/ chorus/ultegra/parts and tubular wheels. True, I have an ovalized down tube.

    Early super record titanium parts? pedal axles, BB spindle? of course the pivot bolts are titanium. The combined weight of the DT shifter and lever is probably less than your brifters... 6 speed freewheel and old record hubs could be a bit lighter. DB spokes... I think TSX is splined accounting for a bit more weight... dual pivot brake are probably a tad heavier too.

    sounds like you didn't buy it. Hope you did though.

    Nah, I didn't buy it, I was broke at the time. Come to think of it, I'm still broke...

    It was?! Either I completely forgot about it or somehow it slipped through the cracks of my obsessive daily Craigslist-crawl. Damn. Know what size it was?

    I do the same crawl.

    It was my size, so it was probably a 57 or 58, could have been a 54 or 56.

    It was $350, I think, but not quite complete-- nearly complete, but not quite.
