So Abarth alerted me to a craigslist add, I clicked and I bought. What I know about the bike is that it might actually fit which is a bonus, it has Campy SR parts along with a mixbagged of some so-so parts and it's ugly.
-A decent Rolls in white no less.
-Columbus tubing of some sort.
-Decently filed lugs, Campy dropouts and some chrome here and there.
-Mixmatched improper wheels. Front is a Shimano tri-color hub on a Sun 700c rim while the back is a Matrix rim laced to a Mavic hub (cool) with a 6 speed Regina freewheel.
-Shimano 105 headset.
-BMX pedals (wtf?)
So I guess I want to know what I got. I already know I need an appropriate wheelset, headset, pedals, some nick-nacks and full tuneup. Are the brake calipers SR too?

So whaddy'all think? I'll probably be posting in the ISO/for trade thread looking for some bits to put this poor thing back into shape. I'll likely just give the frame a good cleaning and waxing and live with the "patina". It's only original once right? =)
