Motta Personal 2001R - Quick Winter Photoshoot.

I'll do it proper once spring get's here but this morning I went ahead and grabbed pics of this new build. Just had to time in to get the work in between the snow showers that have been happening. Can't wait to ride this one on the road.


Digging the color of this one. Campagnolo 8 Speed setup

I think the pink tape looks pretty good.

700 x 25 clear just fine.

I seem to use these Soma bars a lot here lately. I find them very comfortable

The signature shaped seat stays.

New Veloce 9 speed cassette converted to 8 Speed.

Limited choices when searching for the cassette, old school gearing.

Pretty drivetrain.

Beautiful old crank but I do need to source some pedals for this.

Pretty front end work with the lugs, paint fade, and pantographing.

Nice seat tube cluster

More sweet Campagnolo parts

Motta

More of the "fade"

Paints in really good shape for the age

This bottle cage will be swapped.

The chrome on the fork is pretty good but showing it's age.

More fork detail

Personal 2001R

I like the way the black seatpost finishes the look. Love to find a black and pink Giro d'Italia saddle to put on this.

A little eye candy to dress it up

Pink bolts but need to replace this old bottle cage

Bars ready to sweep down the road.

Front end goodness

Worse condition decal on the bike.

Nicely done.

Nice shine still!

Chorus hubs with Velocity rims

Are you implying that these pictures were just some quick casual picture's? These are awesome pictures. Yea, the snow drift background helps a lot. The pictures and the bike couldn't be more perfect right down to the pink anodized cable end.

jamesdak thanks for the pics. that is a sweet one again... do you plan to apply some protection to the lower headlug? those cables are pretty tight, which looks clean but not the greatest friends with the nice PJ.

Yep, ran out of the film protectors I've been using and am waiting for new stuff to come in. My wandering mind had a heck of a time staying focused as I cut the housings on this one. I keep saying I need to quit building bikes but then forget, LOL!

Beautiful. I owned two Motta Personals, a 1978 and a 1985. I don’t think mine ever looked as nice as the OPs.

Beautiful. The snow really sets it off. When I route shift cables under the handlebar wraps, I loop it way out and then back to the down tube cable stop. That way it doesn't rub on the head tube:

I have since put a zip tie right where the two shift cables cross each other. That make the cables splay out even more- and they completely clear the headtube.

Of course, it completely defeats the 'aero' purpose of the under-wrap routing Priorities, man!

Dude, you're losing a critical .00003 watts with that setup!!

Finally put some Look Keo pedals on this. 21 lbs, 8 ozs with the pedals. Keeps raining today, otherwise I'd take it out for some better shots.

Still just barely able to pedal the Azor bike right now with the replaced knee. May be a couple of more weeks before I can ride any real road bike.

James, when did you have your knee replacement? My wife had hers done in February and it has really been slow progress. I've was hoping we would have been on the tandem by now. Hopeful to be out in a couple of weeks.

Mine was done April 10th. Still trying to get past 90 degrees of flex. Doing PT on my own several times a day and them 2-3 times a week at the clinic. Worse part for me is I just can't sleep. It's not really painful but aches in bed and I'm lucky to get a full hour here and there throughout the night. I hope she's back to full speed soon.

Found a nice fitting saddle to finish this one off. She's now 21 lbs 4 0zs as in these pics.
