Would love to get some photos of the bike for my collection if it is not too much trouble. Just out of curiosity, what would you ask for the 38cm bars, assuming a prospective purchaser does not take you up on the offer to swap them out? Nick says he has a set for me, but he's out of town at the moment and I don't know if they are the right size.
I got a nice set of what appear to be first generation Campy brake levers today for $15. I'm still not sure if I'm going to keep the Universals on the Masi, but for that price I figured I should go ahead and get them anyway.
Looks like you've got some nice stuff on Ebay. Those high-flange C-Record hubs are gorgeous... wish my set looked that nice.
Hope all's well with you.
