Woah, these parts are looking the goods! They'll look retro when its on the frame. Except for the non quill stem. Is it going on that Aussie frame you were talking about? I had a look on eBay, and it doesnt look too bad.

Downtube and friction is a major change for you isnt it? Could go with DA 10s indexed downtube shifters to at least have indexing. And have fun finding a 1" threaded carbon(theres 2 aero ones on eBay now, a Giant and a Profile) or Ti fork. They dont pop up that often.

And if youre looking for a brown old style saddle, PM Saro from the Retro ride thread. I reckon he'll have something for you.

Need titanium wheelset?

Thanks Quang. Yep looks like that that will be the frame. I am not to keen on the downtube shifters but I really like they way how they are placed on the bike. And I don't really want those extra cables in the handlebar too.

The frame will come with the Ti fork too, hopefully, they will all blend together.

Dont use an ugly arse threadless stem on a threaded steerer. There's plenty of Cinelli and Nitto stems to be found on eBay and online retail stores.

Why did you remove the Campagnolo branding off the brake calipers? I'd keep that over the Tektro markings on the levers. Campagnolo has more rep for retro than any other brand your going to use.

Other than my whinging i think its going to turn out quite nicely.

Thanks for the feedback singlespeedscott, that helps a lot.
-I am working to fit everything within my budget at the moment. I already have the set of Ritchey Handlebar and threadless stem before planning this build. :-(, in the future, once I have worked out the correct stem length, geometry... etc, I will buy the Cinelli or shiny Nitto. This also means I need to buy new handlebar.
-The Tektro Marking will go away as well, along with the SRAM/GXP markings on the crankset. I want to keep all the branding there but it seems that each part here have their own branding, lol. I may have to remove the Deda RS markings too.
-The parts I have bought recently to complete this build are the following:
Seat Post: 27.2 Deda RS01
Quill Adapter: Design Profile Alloy
Wheelset: XLR8 Custom built Wheels, Silver Hubs, spoke and rim (about 1.7kg) http://xlr8wheels.com.au/
Crankset: SRAM Rival Silver
Pedal: Shimano A520 Silver SPD
Bottom Bracket: SRAM Force GXP
Shifters: Downtube Dia Compe Friction

Yeah, I would like to know more as well. I (sort of) recall the name, but I have never seen one of these before.
