    I agree with you on the Cinelli bars, my all time favs. I have a number of pairs of 63's and 66's which I can no longer use.

    Cinelli bars use a 26.4 mm clamp and I can't find any threadless stems that will fit a 26.4 mm bar, so the bike I am building right now, rather than use the Cinellis as I had wanted to - I find I had to hunt around to find a classic bend bar - which you can't get in silver!

    Damn, I want to be able to use my Cinellis.

    Man, it's good to see you finally reach the end of this project. The Colnago is just right as it sits. Ride it, admire it, and keep it 'til you both turn to dust. Excellent work, Viper...

    Dude, tell me about it. Been on the exact same search myself lately. I ended up getting a pair of anatomic bend ITMs from Nashbar to replace the flexy Modolos I'm using now. I'm seriously considering getting a Deda 215 bar in black, removing the anodizing on it with oven cleaner, and polishing the bare aluminum. I started a thread here in Roadie and in C&V about this issue like 3 days ago.

    That Colnago is absolutely gorgeous. Where did you source the rims? (Sorry if I missed it somewhere in this thread.)

    Can't you ream the stem to 26.4 mm? It's only 0.4 mm...

    I guess I am not alone. I just went through the 17 pages, and what can I say that has not been said a dozen times. Outstanding.

    Talk about coincidences. Today I was coming back from work thinking. I thought to myself that I will start to collect parts to put together a classic steel Italian bike with nothing but record components in it. I was thinking along the lines of a Colnago, Ciocc, Cinelli, or maybe a Binachi. I figured tht this would be a good time to start and it would be a nice treat for me to slowly get it done. Then, I come home to find this thread. I could drool for hours here.

    I will certainly save the thread as I will have to refer to it frequently and maybe bother you with plenty of questions.

    Simply gorgeous!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Arguing with ignorant people is an exercise in futility. They will bring you down to their level and once there they will beat you with their overwhelming experience.

    Thanks for every-one's great comments!


    Well, I came home today after work, wanting to get a picture of it for you guys outside, I dropped off my pack, grabbed my camera and headed for a quick spin around the block to a church in my area. I wanted an older wall that would be fitting for the vintage bike, although this isn't what I had in mind, it had to do. Mainly I wanted the bike to see some sunlight.

    The ride was much too short to really determine anything. I didn't want to ride it too far as the chain is not a good match for the system, and I'll need a Regina for this Synchros system. I'll maybe go to my LBS and try a Sram until I can find/get a Vintage Regina.


    So here are the quick shots I took








    A Special Thanks to 55/Rad, 14Max and Blandin for all your help and support. You guys are the best!

    Thanks for all the support, help and comments from all the people that have posted here. You really helped to keep this Job on track and in line!





    Now if I could only get a real ride in on this, I'd be happy

    The Rims I got from 55/Rad. They were Original to a Project bike he had.

    For the 26.4 Cinelli bars, My bars are 26.4mm and my stem is a 26. I was going to mill it out, but I was able to squeeze the bars in there. I just need to make a thicker rubber gasket inplace of the stock rubber.

    Bellissimo.

    White Regal would look better though.

    Maybe it's because of the bike's colour or sculpted components, but it conjours up images to me of the Jaguar D type open race car. A true work of art.

    Thanks Nostromo, for me it was more Ferrari GTO, or simular, but I catch your drift, and the relationship to the Jag D type as Art is understandable... That is beautiful, no doubt about it

    ViperZ,
    Dayam, that's the most well planned and executed build I've seen on these boards yet. One question that remains is whether or not vintage steel might replace ti as your favorite material.

    Wow, two of my favorite hand-built Italian machines in one thread! =)

    If it's any interest, the same family that started Columbus tubing for bicycles also owned Gilco, makers of tubular chassis for Ferrari race and road cars in the early 1950s. In fact, some Columbus sticker decals on bikes have the Gilco name on them as well.

    Nice stuff Viper, those straight chrome forks give it a more aggressive look. My how the stable can grow in one year
    I feel like a soiled kleenex dropped in the gutter in the red-light district of Paris.
