A couple of new pics

Resurrecting for a couple of fresh pics in the old thread here.

If I need further justification, the new Lizard Skins DSP tape I wrapped yesterday really ties it all together...

Posted an identical WTB over on Paceline, but figured I'd broaden my options by duplicating here.

Title says it all, pretty much.

Love it. Looks like they might be mixing that black pearl paint the same as they did in '84. :thumb:

Def a classic look with that paint and the gold decals, fill, and lug lining.

Tasteful...

I honestly didn't notice a real big difference.

The tweaks Toby made to get the fork 'just so' were relatively minor, I was led to understand.

Better with the new shoes, even.

Tanwall Parigi-Roubaix round it out as a little more 'C&V' than the red Vredesteins, I reckon.

This one stays clean, only out in the sunshine.

Not my size, but I just saw one of these - identical paint/tubing/details - at the shop I work at today, and it definitely rekindled my Merckx lust.

Owned one of these from ~1983 or so.

Same decals, same seat stay caps, same sloping-crown fork, same headbadge. Much taller, black/gold.

Nice bicycle, good quality construction. Sharp looker.
