    Thanks Blandin, I think Chalk is white, and I have found it else where on line as well, however it's one of those items I need to order something else to make it worth while for the shipping...etc Maybe 3-4 rolls of the stuff??? Yeah, that's it, 3-4 rolls

    Thanks for that link Blandin. I ordered 2 rolls of Fizik Chalk White bar tape and a Jagwire Expressway Brake Cable Kit.

    Holy friggin' drool fest.

    13 years ago, when I was a poor boy high school kid doing my USCF junior races on my trusty little Fiorelli with scrapped-together Shimano 105, I used to dream about Campy C-Record and Colnagos like yours. While all of the other kids in high school were scrawling rock band logos and "sport" team logos (baseball, football, and other mindless games that all of the jockos were into), I was busy tediously sketching C-Record componentry and Italian bike logos like Campy, Colnago, Rossin, Cinelli, etc, in my notebooks in places where math equations and years of historical battles were supposed to go.

    Granted, my racing career lasted only a few years with minimal success and ended when I went to college, but my love for the sport and passion for machines like your Colnago never died, and never will. More so, I'm glad that even though my current bike is an aluminum and carbon cyclocross beast, and my next bike will be a carbon techno-wonder, I'll always retain my appreciation for handcrafted chrome lugs, Italian paint jobs, the old-world stlye of Campy Nouvo and Super Record, and the mouth-watering swoopy, melted, curvy, and aero-smooth stylings of Campy C-Record, the most beautiful components ever created for the bicycle.

    One of my finer cycling memories from back in the days: A whole hour spent at a pro bike shop in Brooklyn poring over every detail of a majestic Colnago Master America circa 1987 with jewel-like fully pantographed C-record.

    Absolutely beautiful build you have there. Good luck with it and please keep posting those wonderful pictures.

    BTW, have been able to find more C-Record parts with Colnago pantographing?

    Thanks for sharing those thoughts Jpearl! I'm like you in that I really dig the most modern technological bikes available, however I also love the classic stuff with a bit of heritage, history or even a story behind it. Primarraly 80's C Record equipped Colnagos, Rosins, DeRosas, Guercotti's, Pinarellos & Cinelli. I too believe C-Record was the most beautifully sculpted group ever made for a bicycle, and the fact that it's time coincided with my early love affair with bicycles makes it the most sought after period for myself.

    I can almost feel what it would have been like to be in the Brooklyn shop poring over that Master America. In fact that story has me in the same shop with you

    I have not seen many Colnago Pantographed C-Record parts. I suspect they are more a rarity, rather than the rule as was the Colnago (or many other Italian builders) Pantographed Super Record components.

    I have access to a CNC milling machine and have often thought of doing my own Pantographing, but then it would just be my own story, and not have a really history behind it or be time honored.

    I owe you one, as I owe 55/Rad and 14max big time! Your guys help and inspiration can not be thanked enough. I'm fortunate to have such willing and giving individuals that share the same passion.

    i like them both as well, but if it were my choice i would go with the regal. to me, it just seems more fitting to the bike.

    both are beautiful on the bike though.

    i can't get enough of that bike. soooooooooooo beautiful, in the way a classic ferrari would be considered beautiful (this complement coming from a confessed car enthusiast, so it really means somthing)

    Thanks Goldfish, we're totally on the same page... So many times I think and envision this build much as if it is a vintage Ferrari. The fact that Colnago and Ferrari have a long history together only fuels that

    Oddly enough, the color combo of the Italian Job always reminds me of a black Lamborghini Countach with a white leather interior I seen in a car magazine once

    Thanks, a Cinelli Super Corsa would have been my other choice. Those were spectacular bikes as I remember. 14max bought a new one and sent it back right away, I had heard the workmanship of those has suffered of late, however I also have learned that 14max is a perfectionist

    Rad, those would be perfect as I was wanting to put clips and straps on it for show. I have a pair of older Diadoras with cleats for that era. PM me with a price Other than that I was considering another pair of SPD type peddles that woudl work with what I have.

    It's beautiful! Spiral SLX...? I so wanted a SLX bike back in the day.... It' strange how Colnago mixed up the tubing on the Master Series. I can't quite tell from the pictures, but does your Master have the Gilco crimped tubes like mine? I suspect not for it has the internal spirals of the great SLX set.

    Yeah, the Super Corsa would've been a great bike with the exception of the paint job. The tube thing is more of a quirk though. And, yes, I could've lived with the Serotta as is was but it was being overhauled anyway why not send it to paint? And, yes, I DID have to have a matching seatpost to complete my Dura Ace group.

    Um...maybe you're right. There are probably really excellent 12-step programs for guys like me...

    Not to worry Max, you are not alone in your Plight. Like you, many of us all suffer from the same affliction. When I built Project Tuscany, I burnt up 3 sets of cables getting the look and feel just right, with not too much or too little cable. So we all have our issues. The matching tubes I can understand, as I like having matching Tubes as well. Having mismatched valves stems would just be wrong
