i recently picked up my grail bike (red De Rosa with C Record), so when this came up on CL i was debating whether or not to check it out, but the size, the condition and price were right, so it came home with me.
these pics are the seller's but they're quite good (hosted on my Flickr)
i believe it to be from 1985. Specialissima top of the line? bulgier's site shows a similar bike but not quite the same.
other than the seat post, i believe it to be all original, full SR.
paint and chrome are in near perfect condition (only surface rust on chain stays which i've already removed 99% of the way), decals are all excellent with the 'specialissima' being the worst. as usual it seems, the dome nuts on the calipers are the worst of the bunch.
i'll probably source a fluted SR seat post, replace cables, replace toe straps, overhaul all bearings and throw on my newly built Mavic Open SUP Ceramic clinchers on low-flange Record hubs and call it a day. the bar tape is super nice and tight, the brake hoods are soft and supple with no tears, cable housings are in great shape. saddle is also in fantastic condition. i'm keeping the GL330's, they show very little brake surface wear and eyelets are pretty clean, maybe i'll go tubular just for fun rides.
i'll post updated pics when i get it all cleaned up, i'm excited.
