I realized a set of NR wheels I built up had a spacing of 120mm, not 126mm as I believed. I had the parts so I am building it up as a Raleigh Competition NR to test the fit. It is mostly together minus cables and chain.

Nice, now level your saddle or set it just a "touch" up traditional Brooks style.

Good eye. The saddle hadn't been cinched down yet during the photos and the place I usually take pictures is ever so slightly on a downward slope.

Black beauty. Very sharp.

If that's your approximate saddle height (if not the final iteration of tilt), this seems like it should be a nice fit.

This one is making my '78 Pro frame, with its decade-too-late Japanese bits in current project mode, more than a little jealous of all this Campy goodness.

Beautiful work on the frame paint touchups. Looks like you spent a fair amount of time on it. Outstanding work!
