Keep in mind that generally he has a lot of bikes waiting to be repaired/built/repainted so it might take about 2-3 months.
Thanks for the link! I'll keep this in mind for when I get the '82 Gap repainted.

No problem, good luck with the build. He offers re-chroming as well, but he outsources it and it's a tad bit expensive in my opinion. I had my fork crown re-chromed and it turned out really well.

Updated the 1987 Basso Gap with Campagnolo Record 10 components from 2003 and Shamal Ultra Titaniums. The shamals are one of the best wheels I've ridden on, as light as some modern carbon clinchers are ridiculously stiff.

Since Horatio made the first post in the thread, his ‘84 Basso has moved on to my stable. Here she is from last spring. It was gonna be my Eroica rider this year but didn’t happen, so I did my own local ride.

1991 Basso Laguna - built in the USA by Aegis.
Aegis was building the early CF frames for several other companies including Trek.

Guess I missed this thread the first few times it popped up. Lot's of Gaps here, which I always have an eye out for. Also always keeping watch for an Astra and, a sort of grail, a Monza.

My 1989 Paris-Roubaix:


My '88 Loto:


My '88 PR next to his older brother, the Loto (I don't have a "glamour" shot of the PR, as I've yet to clean it up and restore it):


And the new boy, the 2019 Diamante SV (bought used at a very deep discount vs new):


Siblings:

Let's see it! Always cool to see their different paint schemes... and if it's the version with the sprinkles fade (not sure what else to call it), I'm going to be jealous.
