I've got a very cool Serotta CSI that was rebuilt by Eric Estlund.

The frameset was trashed and rebuilt from the ground up. It now has a new front fork, discs and even fenders.

New stays as well.

It'll even fit 700x30s under the fenders. I bought it for my oldest son, who outgrew it before the project was finished. A few forum members have seen it and everyone is unanimous in praise of the workmanship.

I've been on the brink of selling the frameset a few times, but it's so hard to let it go.

The only reason I don't build it is I have a Della Santa that I love and I really can't justify another bike sitting here on a hook.

My CSI would've ended up somewhat like this, but with a level top tube.

btw My wife said I get to have a Winter knife upon my retirement. Yet another reason to get out of the teaching business one of these years.
