I have been kiching around the thought of a custom build for myself.
I love the PUCH ULTIMAs from 1982,
Boca lugs and 531SL tubing= frame weight of around 1800g(not fork)
Now I ask is it realistic to consider a custom build to take a crashed PUCH frame
use the panto fork crown and seat stay tops-
find NOS boca lugs, and build up a 135cm spaced modern version using TI tubing and a professional frame builder?
all the angles will be up to modern specs and brifters.
is there much weight savings on different tubing?
this is only a dream currently,
at my shop we have access to several top frame builders in Italy and I am considering this,
but the architect and details are first.
thanks for any input!
