    It looks like a pretty nice bike from a distance...but it would help to see some more close-up picture.

    E.g. the fork crown, seat cluster (seat stay/top tube junction), rear dropouts, BB, lugs......

    Glad to see it come together so beautifully after the deliberate acquisition of the appropriate pieces.

    I'd be down for something as described.

    My Sunday ride revealed that my legs are not yet up for much climbing this early in the season, but I'd be very interested.

    + price is in pounds sterling, not Euro. So 250GBP = 350 Euro...or about 390 USD.

    EDIT: Not to mention pickup only in London, UK.

    Looks like Shimano 'B' type shifter bosses?

    Which could make sense. Ca. 1980 bike spec'd with then-current Dura Ace, perhaps?

    Not to rain on anyone's parade, but...

    The bike pictured in that link was badly crashed, and would be dangerous to ride unless you completely replace the fork.

    Yeah, looks like a VGT Luxe...so maybe 20g heavier than a shiny new 5600-series Shimano 105 GT. That's not where the weight is on this bike.

    I'd question that assumption.

    Beyond a certain age, even the nicest bikes lacked braze-on bosses and guides. The lugwork here makes it look like this bike may be beyond 'a certain age'.

    I'd...

    The 7410 is a perfect fit in my books, I wouldn't change a thing. Looks great on the bike, and it's an iteration within the group, really - seems pretty appropriate matched with the various 740X...

    Apparently they decided to add a few gears around 1993, but from 1905 to 1989 - yes.

    Aha. Makes sense. I was thinking the decal w/owner's name + frame details fit with the frame itself being a Cyclops.

    Interesting. The fork is from a Mariposa, I think - isn't that their butterfly fork crown engraving? The 'other' Toronto builder.

    Could be a Mariposa repainted by Mike Mulholland and decaled as a...

    Bump.

    Still have the better part of good stack of these 9sp Campy rings left.

    A few nibbles, but only a couple of sales.

    Try $35 shipped per, US or Canada?

    41t silver ring, and 52t silver rings with chain guard and without remain.

    50t black ring remains.
