It is being boxed and shipped as I write.

Now, I need to think about the build. The frame is not a pure collector's piece because the original Look fork has been replaced with a newer Look threadless fork. But, the new combination seems to work aesthetically.

I would appreciate your build and color ideas. I have collected part of a DA 8-speed group (crank, RD, STi's). This might be an appropriate project for the DA.

Enjoy this scan from my archives... could also have been posted in the inuendo thread I guess.



That would be really cool with a Mavic SSC group. Good luck finding one of those.

Mavic SSC would be a great choice.

Or, these black Campy parts (not that I would know where to find them):



Btw, what is the spacing? You mention DA 8-speed. I figured these framesets were all 126mm, and I can't imagine respacing a carbon frame. I know first gen 8-speeds could be squeezed into a 126mm frame, but I wonder if that is a wise thing to do to a carbon frame?

The seller said it was 130 and his running 9-speed Ultegra.

I don't know why as I favor Shimano, but these framesets look like they're just made for Campy.

Didn't Nashbar feature this frame in its early 90's catalogs? I seem to remember salivating over it.

Great stuff all. Do any of you know of any online Look catalogs from this period? Thanks
