Just waiting on different stem (26.0) that'll accept 3TTT 220 bars  and seat post that'll go well with the Nitto pearl stem.

Beautiful, Bob! And different componets, frame, country of manufacture, etc (and clincher, not sew-up) but fundamentally very similar to the bike I raced and have such memories of. Oh, l I had exposed brake cable housings! Aero was a term never used at bike venues!

Quill pedals and stems. Steel. DT shift levers. (Do I see dual pivot brakes?)

It's a personal thing but I am not a big fan of colored tires. ESPECIALLY on classic steel bikes.

Me neither, these have been sitting in a closet for a couple of years so I threw them on to test out the bike. I will be exchanging them to Vittoria Rubino Pros but I must say the yellow really brings out the green in the frame well. So in this case I think it works, though I'll still be exchanging tires. Ride quality trumps esthetics.
