My new (to me) Medici Pro Strada

Finally got time to finish and snap a few pictures. Sorry cell phone pictures.

I bought this Medici about a month or so ago and just couldn't find a chance to break it down and put it all back together. Well, finally found some time and I'm in love. Rides like a dream and I'm happy with it. A little more "loud" compared to my Peugeot, but I figure it's nice to have something on the other side of the spectrum.

The parts are a bit of a mishmash, but it's a bit too costly to switch components out at this time.

Frame: Tange Prestige
Headset: Campy SR
Stem/Handlebars: Cinelli 1R and Giro 64
Brakes: Campy SR brakes
Shifters: Suntour Superbe
FD: Campy SR
RD: Campy C-Record
Cranks: Campy C-Record
Pedals: I believe Campy Victory aero pedals
BB: Campy C-Record
Saddle/Seatpost: Iscaselle saddle (Thanks Kurt) and Suntour Superbe seatpost
Wheels/hubs: Mavic Open 4CD laced to Suntour Superbe

Special thanks to all the C&V folks that helped me along the way of buying and putting this bike together.

sweet! the medici graphics are really cool and you did a great job with coordinating the saddle/wrap.

i should maybe point out those brake barrel adjusters are out sooooo far it almost looks dangerous.

Ok I'll just used this thread instead of creating a new one...

I'm missing some mounting hardware for the Campy Victory aero pedals... Does anyone know how hard it is to find this stuff or would it be possible to source something that will fit from a hardware store?

Also, I have a set of Campy Veloce brakes that I bought awhile back that I never ended up using. Do you think that would be better than the SR I have now? I'm not a stickler for period-correctness or any kind of correctness for that matter. Maybe selling or trading the SR brakes would help me re coup from the bike purchase(s) as well.
