@due ruote I'm using Grand Bois Maes Parallel. I had my eye on the AGCs but could never turn up a good enough pair with black hoods on the bay.

@stahlrahmen , try our friends at Norther Cycle. They don't show any on their website, but you never know.

The TRP RRL levers are basically short reach. They look like long reach at first glance, but they're not. I'm pretty sure they'd work well with Maes bend type bars, perhaps even better than with ergos. Also, they are two position adjustable: modern or vintage tilt. The looks aren't for everyone, but I like them.

Who is the painter? That is exceptional.
Ten months would not be unusual here in the States. With all the chrome and all the details perfected ten months is very much in the ballpark.

Everything looks well thought out and well executed.

I don't usually approve of quoting pictures, but that bike looks so good I decided to do it anyway

It's really gorgeous. When you get a chance, I am one of the folks who would like to see the build list. Really stunning.

@noobinsf I just realized I previously put together the build list when I started the thread! I just updated it (page 1) with missing info.
@63rickert Paint was done by Robert at Velo Ciao here in Berlin. Great dude and does super work. He sent the bike to Italy for chroming.

I made some minor adjustments today and concluded the Dia-Compe's simply are not for me. I'm looking for something like Shimano BL-R600 or maybe even some thing Campagnolo ergos and... ripping out the ergo part la Peter Weigle. I love the Campy grip but don't need the ergo part. This weekend I'll finish off the wiring and housing.

Edit: Minor thing but I plan to swap my brass Crane bell for a silver one. I've had the brass one for ages but it will have to live with my old bike. Not sure why, but it seems out of place on this build and I think the silver one will blend in much nicer.

It's quite apparent that 10-11 months is the waiting time for chrome.

I've come to realize that the older Tektro levers would work well (as they are a near copy to the Campy 2nd gen). So, I figured before I gut a pair of Campy, I might as well just save the time/money and get the Tektro. Yeah, can't find them online anywhere anymore. Check the bay, my local listings, etcs. I found some r200a but I'm looking specifically for the short reach version which is r100a. Anyone know where I might be able to snag one of these?

Whoever is doing Brian Chapman's chroming seems to do it right away. But he mostly has racks, stems and small parts chromed.
