Colnago Elegant with Columbus EL OS (oversized tubing) started life with a terrible paint job in a rather un flattering white. The frame was shot blasted and then painted in tribute colours to the Molteni era.

The bike has been built up with a modern Dura Ace groupset and Mavic R-Sys wheelset. 130mm rear spoacing made for an easy transition to modern componentry. Still to change the stem set up which is currently a quill converter but the modern stem produces a too bulky appearance to the cockpit. Cinelli quill and Deda bars coming soon.

Not of course steel however Alan's history with Colnago surely qualifies them for a place on the site. Full Campagnolo C-Record build with Delta Brakes. Campagnolo NOS Omega rims laced to record hubs. Simply stunning! More photos and coming to the bikes page soon.

Happy with the Colnago Nuovo Mexico build the Classic Steel Bicycles Mexico received a couple of pantographed upgrades. Namely a stem and Campagnolo Super Record Chainring. Along with a fresh wrap of handlebar tape and some new cables the project is finally finished. Very happy with the results.

Classic Steel Bicycles Eddy Merckx 1987 Professional finally gets gears. An Athena drivetrain paired with Campanolo Record Syncro II shifters change it from a single speed into a 'proper' vintage road bike.

The syncro shifters currently have an 8 speed insert which doesn't play well with the 7 speed cassette but as soon as we fit the 7 spped insert things should gel nicely. The Record shifters fortunately have a friction mode option too engaged by twisting and pulling on the knurled wheel so it's not a pain to use but will be a lot easier with indexing.
