Not sure how this escaped anyone commenting before, but this is gorgeous.

What's the story to it being in such incredible condition?

Thank you so much for the kind words.
This frame was built and painted by a friend of mine in the early 90ís. He used Imron w/ clear coat. I built it up w/ Campy 8spd. And rode it hard for about 10 years. I put it away in my basement. I got inspired by the C&V forum, dug it out in 21 and rebuilt it. My original post is titled
ď You guys are the best, thanks for the inspirationĒ
Iím not sure how to link to it. The whole story and more pictures are in that post, if youíre interested.

Clamping that bike on the decal rather than the seatpost may result in sadness and/or self-flagellation later on. Don't ask how I know.

First-year Brooks C17 Special with the organic cotton top. Gets dirty like you wouldn't believe. Wears like denim jeans. Gets wet and stays wet.

The only OEM piece left on her is the set-binder bolt.

Must have missed this thread earlier. Haven’t shown the Tempo in a while so here it is proudly adorning its period-incorrect WHITE Charge Scoop.

I think that this qualifies - my Felt TK2 track bike:


White seat and (almost white!) bar tape to match..
