you guys may recall i started on a restoration of my '84 Ciöcc "Mockba '8 0".  i'd had the frame repainted by Assenmacher in '98 with an OK, but no t fantastic red with proper decals.  i rode/raced that for a while with m odern (at the time) 8spd campy bits.

in 2001 after picking up a Ti colnago "ovalmaster" to be my everyday road b ike (which i recently sold), i decided to freshen up the ciöcc with some chrome and re-build it proper as it was back in the day.  the chroming wa s a success, which i reported on CR, and i began accumulating the necessary bits for a proper build.  this foto-essay includes some ham-handed DIY f inish work on the chrome-paint transitions -- while not perfect, it looks f ine from 5' away:

now that the paint/chrom were done...i finally got to fit all the proper SR bits i'd accumulated for the re-build, the results of which appear here.   note that this was a long process -- we're talking +5 years, primarily due to apathy/laziness on my part!

this is the bike i need those brake-cable guide inserts...braking power is TERRIBLE without them if you're running aero routing -- looks like campyold y.com has 'em...thx guys!
