Have a look at this marvelous paintjob of my new Daccordi

Here it is. My latest acquisition.
An old Daccordi in nos condition. If you have read my other thread you know I had
the choice between 3 different Daccordis frames in different colors.
Finally I decided to choose this one. Why? Because I was fallen for the Paintjob and
the lots of chrome.

This one has Columbus SLX Tubes and is Shimano 600 equiped.
Seat Tube is a Zeus and Seat a nice Turbo in brown.
Handlebar and Stem both are 3TTT and the Rims are Mavic MA2 700C.
Since I haven`t found matching pedals yet I made the pictures without.

For the rest I will let the pictures speak.
Hope you like it! Would be gratefull if you told me what you think about this bike!

Delicious. Love the paint color. If it rides at least as good as it looks and there is no reason to think otherwise you made a great choice.

I see a paint chip on the BB in that last pic. Unacceptable! I'd send it back.

If you're referring to the inside of the chain stays, take a closer look. Tire contact there is definitely going to remove some paint.

Sure is a pretty bike!

Agreed, that is very cool. I also like how the side faces of the dropout are painted but the rear bit is chrome.

Nice paintjob always good to see bikes when the finish on them is this fresh!
About the BB though, I always wondered ho one might be able to preserve the finish at the cable guide grooves. I noticed that in most bikes with this BB cable guide set up (ones without a plastic guide doohickey) the paint really starts to suffer where the shifter cables eventually rubs/grinds the paint off, then rust might start. Can you cut some brake cable casing plastic or teflon(?) liner tubes (hopefully some clear ones) and put short sections on the cables at the grooves. It might be flexible enough so as it does not affect shifting performance......just an idea.

I use the cable protector tubing commonly found on mtb's with bare cables along the top tube. It's black, and it is very thin so it fits inside any "hoops" that happen to be present on the BB cable grooves. This particular bike doesn't have them, but my Cinelli, Palo Alto, and Pogliaghi do. They work great, keep grit from binding up the cable (I've had that happen), protect the paint, and ease the friction on the cable a bit.

They're cheap, too.

Beautiful bike, and great photography too. Good idea documenting what it looks like before the inevitable scratches and wear start to appear (you will be riding the hell out of it I trust??

It would be interesting to see if you could get some bar tape to match the saddle.

Thank you all for the comments.
I was hoping I wouldn`t be the only one who likes this bike!
I`m so happy to have picked this one. In the shop where it was hanging in a back room with bad light the color didn`t come out truly.
Once I got home I was sure to have made the right choice.

Bianchigirl-> When I was taking the pictures I first noticed the dropouts and was so impressed by them. It`s a nice detail to have this paintjob on the dropout sides and the rest to be chromed.
This shows how much effort they put in a daccordi bike.

And yes, it is new, nos, never riden or used. ( if you don`t count the 1km by me before taking the pictures )


-> Mercator: good idea. I will see what I can make, but I am convinced a brown bar tape would improve the the look of that bike.

I think I will keep it to 6. That`s enouth for a real man

If anyone has an idea where I could get the matching pedals pls let me know.

Well, if you're going to get all perfectionist and match the tape to the saddle, you might also consider a polished stem as well.

I'd love to ride that bike. I enjoy SLX framed bikes, in fact my favorite riding bike is a De Rosa using this frame material.

Some very nice frame details as well, and I'm sure the 600 gruppo will perform admirably.

All three of the bikes in your other post were very nice.

I congratulate you on your decision.
