Hello everybody. I am doing my first restore and thought I would document it here. The bike was actually my first race bike from when I was a junior. I found it in my parent’s crawlspace a few months ago and thought to myself, “This thing deserves better than to be in a crawlspace!” It is a Ciocc designer 1984. Is that even a model? I know it wasn’t a top of the line frame, but I managed to put about 35 thousand miles on it before I upgraded to an aluminum Guerciotti at some point. It had a hodge podge of mid range components on it that included mostly Shimano 600, but I pretty much destroyed most of that through my early years of racing. I picked up a bike on Craigslist with mostly 80’s record components and am in the process of cleaning that stuff up to used on this bike. They came off of a Diamant that I posted a thread about earlier. Anyway I sent the frame out to be striped and powder coated with the same color, but I had him add a pearl overcoat. I’m curious to see how that will turn out. Picking it up today actually and will post pics this weekend. Sent away for decals a few weeks ago, but have not received them yet. Anyway glad to be here and can’t wait to get this started. I’ve included pics of what the frame looked like before I sent it out. I really wish the frame had chrome dropouts and fork, but so is life.
