Ok, so I haven't exactly been posting or reading much of the bike forums for a while due to various other interests distracting me...
But here's something I picked up off of ebay, dropped off at a bike shop, etc etc. and right now it's nearly done. Just waiting on a thomson seatpost and a selle italia yellow saddle.
Obviously not going to be for rainy days, but definitely won't be kept as room decoration.
(no that's not how high I like my saddle, that's only there so I can put it on the repair stand)
(yeah, yeah, paint is chipping, guy who shipped it didn't pack it too well and it was well used)
I only have a few questions I hope that someone can answer.
1: As you can probably see on one of the pics... Needs a new chain, and maybe chainrings. Think I can get away with just a chain replacement, or should I replace chain, and chainrings? The cassette still has nice and sharp teeth.
2: Can anyone guess what year/model this might be? Columbus SL tubing and a pearl paint job.
Shimano 600/Ultegra 7sp all around, Wolber TX PROFIL rims. (had cinelli stem and bars).
3: Serial number... can't find one, unless it's a 3-digit number stamped on the BB. BB has 52 and 542 stamped into it. 52 is obviously size. 542? any guess?
Well, enough text, now for some eye candy. It's a pearl purple/blue/off white paint with yellow/orange/black accents. Changes colour depending on the angle you look at it. I like it
Oh, don't worry about my couch/bed, tires are brand new/haven't seen pavement and drive train isn't exactly dripping oil. Not that I would mind getting dirty in bike grease. lol
