It is a good idea to make bikes of the same marque with different components. Shakes up the ride characteristics.

Because I am starting with a blank frame I pulled out all sorts of parts with possible colour matches but then yesterday scored a nice surprise. While helping out at the co-op, came up with a good/fair condition celeste Selle Italia Bianchi saddle. Because the decals are celeste I have decided to stick with that scheme. The purple accents in the decals will be matched by the bottle cages. So that leaves tape and cable covering to find.

Ditto with the catalogue search. I'll keep looking as well.
Thank you - it will get some black reflective tape and will also get some sort of fenders (it will be my rainy weather trainer).
