Subject: [CR]Complete Super Record gruppo and pantography

For anybody looking forward to equip a mid 80's Italian bike, there is a fellow in Switzerland who is offering a complete Super Record gruppo for what I consider a to be a good "buy it now" price of 410 euros.

This gruppo is especially interesting for those that might want to get their complete bike pantographed, as it has the 1985 cranks without any milling and the single bolt seatpost also without milling. This therefore leaves a pantographer a lot of design freedom. The Super Record chainring is presently pantographed Pinarello, but this could easily be sold and replaced with a Nuovo Record one.

For those that were not at le cirque, I have found a fellow in Italy who would be more than happy to do pantographing for what I consider to be a very reasonable price. If you might be interested, let me know and I will send you photos of his work and his prices.

On my bike, he milled out the spider of my cranks; drilled, milled and pantographed the chainring: pantographed the seatpost, the brake levers and the stem. After a bit of in-filling with paint, the final result was in my opinion very nice. He can also apparently do shift levers and brake calipers.
