Thanks, this makes sense. To be honest for a moment I felt spooked! The only other logical explanation would be if you were also watching the same ad and had the seller sent you the same pics privately, lol!!!

Thanks for your help!

A lot of Shimano 600 tri-color cranksets came with round rings. They offered both options from the factory:

Thanks, I also noticed that later on in the process after browsing a few used ones on ebay. The Athena however looks great and works equally well, so I went for that as I am mainly a Campagnolo guy on classic bikes.

It's a Pinarello Acciaio from late 60ies - 1970 according to the Columbus decal. Everything on it is Campagnolo Nuovo Record. It is a truly loveable bike and performs really well. A few pics:

Dang, that's a proper gravel road. That couldn't have been comfortable on those skinny tires.

It's one of the classic strade bianche, the white roads around Tuscany. They are generally flat but have harder more cobbled sections and occasionally some tougher downhill bits. Approximately 30% of all L'Eroica routes are white roads. I am OK handling them as I am primarily a mountain biker, but they can be tough and intimidating to go fast. Great fun though, and part of the Eroica tradition.

Bike now complete

Bike setup now complete. Final changes made:

- Wheels swapped to tubs, Mavic GP4 with Campagnolo Record hubs and Vittoria Rallye 23 tubs.
- Levers swapped to NOS 600 tricolor with white hoods (sourced separately)
- Pedals swapped to period-correct Campagnolo Record.

Now looking forward to dry weather to take her out!

Caliwild yes I think so.

I've already got an older Tommasini wool jersey and a yellow and blue cap, but having seen Tiger1 's bounty above I just went and checked out their site, and all that stuff and more is there. I just bought another cap, 2 water bottles and some Tommasini socks.

I wish they did gloves as I need a new set anyway, and that would have been a nice addition to the Tommasini kit..

Yep! Go to the "buy" section at Tommasini.it.
I also got my pantographed Cinelli stem from them!

I started with the wool jersey myself and ended up adding the full bounty, lol!
The white T-shirt is also worth it, nice design and good quality.
