My wish for a truly nice, high end Italian beauty came true! As told in another thread, I helped mrs. Non-Fixie help out cleaning her husband's garage by relieving him of this beautiful frame.
It's a SOMEC elite SX, probably from somewhere in the early 90's, the twilight days of steel in the peloton. NF told me this bike was equiped with dura ace, and raced hard during its life. The paint does show some of this, with several minor nicks and scratches.
Now before going to the pics I'd like to ask you all which group should I try to find to put on it. I'm torn between going for a nice period correct Campagnolo group, but I'm thinking a modern ergopower group would be gorgeous too, with some seriously light wheels... I might even step out of my comfort zone and get Shimano for it (which has the added bonus for a lazy guy like that I don't have to take off the Shimano decals if I decide to run the big S.)
