And did some clear coat as well. Not sure they need a second coat, I might just hang them in the spare room.

Also did some polishing of various bits. Like a NOS 26.6 campag post.

Big spare room! You did a great job of the frames. Applying the decals can be a bit tricky to get them aligned with each other and parallel to the bars. Very impressive.

There may be one that's a degree or two off ;) But after the first ride there will be dirt, grime, stone chips - its there to be ridden so I'm not overly concerned.

I'm a big fan of that Viner. Looks like you did a great job with the paint of both, well done.

Thanks James. I'm pretty pleased with it too. It won't be on a Raturday until the new year, though

Thanks Mr. Monkey. It appears I may have to sell the Europa, though, to fund a few drunken eBay purchases....

Nothing to see here - frames are curing in the garage, all the bits have arrived and It'll jsut be a case of putting them together upon my return from holidays.

this looks just like you, and it looks just like funnybike, except the face part.

sort of vaguely on topic here is a piccy of a nice retro Viner that i saw when i was in Italy this August.
I like those brakes, must be campag or modolo perhaps.

dan can probably tell me why i think the blue tyres go with a pink and yellow frame.
brakes are campag 'monoplaner'

There's the black stem! I particularly like the bell, although perhaps not too functional in it's present guise ;)

that would be early 90s viner. still no cutouts on the lugs but defs a full campy group. look at that nice chorus/c-record headset.

ok, so maybe I built the Europa yesterday.... turns out its 27", not 700C - always had long reach tektros on it, so never noticed. The stock 600 calipers are about 4mm shy though. I could run skinnies and have the shoe overlap the lip of the rim, or buy ridiculously expensive offset brake shoe holders (out of stock everywhere), but I think I'll find some 27" wheels for it - will fill the frame out nicely I think.

Here you go...

Lots of clearance and 3-4mm of shoe overlap.

Thanks Scott. They look great, and are completely useless at the moment! Need to decide whether I build 27" wheels and keep it, or fit some tektros and sell it. Foiled by caliper reach, who'd have thought...
