My new ss project (just mocked up)
Ready for adjustment/shakedown ride! yay!
My new Bianchi. I bought the frame in December and waited months for my SRAM Red group to arrive. Sorry, not the greatest shot: I snapped it just before heading out on my first ride. Steerer needs to be cut, the tape job was quick and dirty, the garage door is brown, and the chain is on the small ring.
It's the only celeste 928 T-Cube I've seen around, so if you see this bike, it should be me. Wave hi!

Nothing wrong with that Alex ... what did you do with the basket? You took it off ...
Here's a bike I just finished building this Sunday, for a friend. A top-tier NOS Chesini frame set fished off of eBay and built up with new Campy Centaur 10 speed. I took it for a 30 mile shake-down yesterday, and is a real sweet ride.

I gotta say, Alex, you have some pretty unique taste in bikes and parts. Chapeaux!
Thanks. I actually found it on a discarded frame a few years ago. I had no idea what it was (aside from "a derailleur" and "old") until recently. The frame also had some crazy-light handlebars on it. Must've belonged to an old-school weight weenie at some point. Too bad the rest was stripped off. I bet it was fun.
Haha, somewhere in my pile is a Multito. If I can find it, I'll bring it to one of the rides and you can add it to your collection.

Upside of 700c wheels on a 27" frame is that there's a bunch of clearance left over. But really, it was a "what's laying around" build, and those were the tires I had laying around. Happy coincidence that they not only fit, but somehow fit the look.
I've only ridden a few miles on it, but so far, it does seem very comfortable. The saddle is beyond broken in, and I may end up being a narrow handlebar convert.
Gorgeous build as per usual John
too bad the seat stay chroming stops just north of the rims, it would have been delicious to have that line up...was the frame built for 27" ?
