Is this thread an excuse to share another picture?
Since my last entry in 2/21, The Derosa has been built and ridden a fair amount. See details of the build which was not straight forward, Help me build a 1990 De Rosa Pro - Bike Forums

The "newest" is the 1971 Bianchi which is still not finished as it needs the wheels double checked for tension and then the tires glued on. 1971 Bianchi build - Bike Forums

The newest is a 1968 Frejus Tour de France that is in poor shape. The price was right because of the extra parts of which are a pair of Campagnolo SL pedals minus a cap. The going price for these pedals on the bay are far more than the price of the acquisition.
So here is a preview of the frame set including the stuck seat post. The Frejus original head set is in great condition, negating the need to spend 3x the price of the acquisition for replacement.

Bikes don't stand alone. They are two tired.

Colnago - Early 1990s

Can someone help me identify the year of manufacture for my recent purchase? I can't find a serial number, but the bike has Columbus Profilo S4 tubing. See photos below.

Mechanically, this is what I planned. Next stage will be after I get some miles on it and our weather warms up and dries out. Then, I’ll do some minor rust treatment and a bit of paint touch up. The wheels & HB tape were purchased from our local co-op where I volunteer. The blue housing was left over from a previous project. The blue Soma saddle came from @Shrevvy. The bars, stem, brakes, crankset, shifters, etc. were acquired over the years either as special bargains or from other projects. …and the frameset is from @machinist42.

Time to ride it!


Very nice bike thanks for sharing
