The new addition to my stable!

In my endless quest for a new commuter I came across this NOS Ti road frame, fork and headset for a song. She has what I think are some nice welds. I never thought I could afford I Ti bike. How could I say no? I've finaly gotten her built up.

NOS Ti frame of unknown orgin. Possibly Russian. 1024 stamped on the dropout.
NOS Mavic Helium rear wheel and hub
Mavic MA3 front rim
Edco Champion front hub
105 FD
Used Campy Record Crank
NOS 9 speed DA cassette
Used Ultragra pedals
Used Ultergra barend shifters
NOS Campy seat post
Used Campy Record brakes
Used Forma bars
Used SLR levers

The used stuff I had mostly lying around, with the exception of the crank and brakes. I think I'm going to put a Brooks b17 on her as well. How does she look? Man, I can't wait to go out and ride!

That's awesome! It is so much fun building up a new frameset with stuff you already have laying around. I have a bunch of shoeboxes full of extra parts that I can't wait to use. I plan to do the same as you- build up a commuter style bike even though I cant commute to work. Hope you enjoy!
