Very nice! I think MAFAC brakes, and a T.A. chainset would work really well on that frameset.

Cheers,
Chris

Awesome, welcome to the Romic family! That Tange BB shell is pretty unique, I've never seen one. Looks like it was built on May 28, 1986.

I'm glad to see that frameset starting to be built. Were it only a little smaller, I'd have run to the ATM grabbed more money and snagged it.

Very unique build.



These have always been some of my favorite DT shift levers. No idea why they appeal to me so much though ahah.

Kudos, dude. Turned out great. Now, I'd be tempted to give that seatpost the "treatment". Haha.

Nice looking Romec. I don't recall ever seeing one of those fancy Tange BBs either.

Nice Triomphe Leisure, I would love to score one of these.
