    Really wild, general! Is that a Hetchins, repainted by Bob Jackson?

    As I understand it, beginning in the mid 80s, many Hetchins frames were built by Bob Jackson Cycles. Jackson had/has rights to the vibrant stays and those ornate lugs.

    Dang, I'm jealous! Sweet!

    Yes, Jackson was building in the Hetchins style at one time.

    Holy... Wow. Frankly, you just bought my dream bike, and I didn't know it until just now. That thing is beautiful.

    To be honest I really dont know yet. It popped up this morning and and ran to get it and thats about as far as I have got with it. The only full groups I have are 7400 DA but I dont feel it would be right on this frame and Im not sure about going full Campagnolo on it either.

    I need to find a little inspiration for her.

    I'd go parts mix, mostly full Campagnolo, no doubt in my mind. Nothing can match the beauty and polish of that frame BUT Campagnolo and a couple of select other bits. I'd go a little weird:

    1. TA Cranks
    2. Campy NR rear derailleur, front derailleur, headset, brake levers.
    3. Campy Delta brakes.
    4. Campy NON-AERO C-record seatpost.
    5. Campy high flange record hubs.
    6. lugged nitto stem
    7. nitto noodles
    8. Brooks copper rivet Pro

    Whatever you do, do it with the best. I also think this is a style over substance project.

    Absolutely fantastic score...I keep waiting for a brilliant stay hetchins and it keeps not happening.

    PLEASE KEEP POSTING PICS AS BUILD PROGRESSES!

    yup, definitely a keeper.

    I like Aarons build list except I can't imagine a frame like that with Campy deltas.
    Mmmm, bicycles.

    The seller had Deltas but I ended up leaving with the Cobalto's instead. I would love to do a full classic built but the braze on front hanger throws me a off a bit, The rear is 130 spaced.

    Aaron, why would you go with NR over SR? I'd think SR would be more "period-correct", but I'm told they shift better and the black on the rear mech would tie in with the frame. Were NR front derailleurs available in a braze on mount? I admit, though, I don't know a lot about Campagnolo stuff.

    I wouldn't like the look of Delta's on that frame.

    Great idea on the lugged Nitto stem. I'd say go whole hog and get the seat post as well. Go gawdy or go home, right?

    Cobaltos, or monoplanars, would have been my next choice

    I think the deltas are the most beautiful brakes made, and they'd sort of pay homage to the Mafac center pulls.

    I doubt you would be able to make it rain after a build like this

    I see SR as more racing specific and NR as more...genteel. This bike is genteel. Does that make any sense? SR would certainly not be a bad choice!

    I would avoid the aluminum SR headsets as they're prone to pitting without constant overhauls.

    Something about the Nitto lugged post is a little much, even for a blinger like me.

    I think so. Were NR and SR being produced at the same time? I'm ignorant.

    Yes sirree bob. We have to get you on Campy!

    Zach - any idea on the year? Whatever you do, keep Shimano cranks away from that bike! Far away. Unless you go 7700.
