Ted Wojcik frame with Campy extras

This is my follow-up, "Did I do alright?", thread. Did I need another bike? Depends who you ask. The Mrs. doesn't know about this one yet.
This lingered on CL for a long time. I liked it but figured it was already sold or there was something wrong with the frame. Seller was hard to connect with. Finally met with him today.
Bike aside, he is a cool cat with an interesting amateur racing background. Owner claimed to have used the bike for time trials when he was 40s-ish. He is 70 yrs old now. Interesting, pleasant dude.
So, here is the run down:
Ted Wojcik frame/fork 80s, Columbus SL, serial # 00032
Campy Super Record headset
Campy seatpost,
Royale Gran Comp brakes and levers
Cinelli stem
Campy Super Record front derailleurs (x2), braze-on and clamp-on
Campy Super Record rear derailleur
Mavic GEL 280 wheels with Campy Record low flange hubs
Mavic wheels (2nd set)
San Marco, Concor- America seat

The frame is a little small for me, I realize now that the heat of the purchase has cooled. But, dang-it, I'll make it work!
I have additional Campy cranks from another era, 1970s. Is it kosher to mix parts from a different era? Would it look bad?

I think I did well here. I paid $275 for the lot. What do ya'll think?

Price seems good. Dia Compe brakes seem odd with all the other Campy parts. Personally I'd ditch 'em for some Campy brakes to match the rest of the group.

The frame looks like Christmas ribbon candy. Hey, its pink. I liked it b/c its so different. Everyone owns a blue or red or grey bike.....but pink turns heads.

I think you should find out what the guy drinks and bring him the best bottle you can find. That's a steal.

I think you did well. An SLX frame alone would probably go for over 200 on ebay. I agree to getting matching campy brakes and I wouldn't worry too much about a non-era campy crank set. Of course if the Mrs. finds out and wants you to get rid of it, I'll happily take it off your hands as a favor to keep the peace.

The Mavic wheels are tubular. I wonder if these are harder to deal with as far as flats, etc.

Gosh, I don't know. The wheels are not marked. How can I check size? If it was built for TT, its still cool for cruising, you know, weekend warrior stuff, right? I'm not savy enough to know....

I like everything about that, and what a great deal. I'd say you got the whole package for the value of the frame. Maybe less than the value of the frame.

As far as wheel size, I'm sure it's 700c. I can see some blurry decals on one of the photos, what do they say?

Yes. I checked. One set of wheels, (I didn't add photos of the second set), is marked 700. One set is whats called "sew up", I think. I never had this type; don't know if they are a pain or not. Anyways, I don't know if the wheels were used on this bike. Should have asked. What I looked at the frame, I asked the owner, "do you have any other parts you want to sell?". So, the wheels may not have come from the bike. I guess I could put them on and see if the brakes line up. Right? Any advice is appreciated. I don't have a lot of knowledge on these wheel questions. I have always bought complete bike, so I am in new territory. Are the sew ups a pain? Should I have the REcord Hubs added to clicher wheels?

Both sets are 700c, then. "Sew up" or tubular wheels are also 700c. Either should work. Some people love tubulars, others say they're a big hassle. I've never personally had any so I can't say for sure.

I rode 24 spoke count wheels, and I'm a touch over 200.
