Oooooh, now that would be sexy with the black rims.
Do the Campy Athena hubs come with a Shimano spline option?

it will be a pretty eye catching thing once its on the road the original paint job is wild! Pure 80s!

if it has the race tag under the top tube, you don't need me to tell you what to do with it,
and if its a 53cm frame, you don't need me to tell you what to do with it.

In later years (once the brand had received some great promotion in the euro peleton) models at the lower end of the scale were a natural way to increase market share, though obviously not that successful over the longer term.
I have one of those fluoro Europas as well, and it looks to be a "fitness bike". I suspect the rear end is 1020 steel. The Belelux equivalent of a Repco Superlite IMHO.
I also own this as well (well, it's my partners bike now). A 2011 Concorde Alloy framed roadie with a carbon fork. It seems that Wiggle now owns the rights to the name, and used it to brand a modern PDM replica. Chain Reaction has done the same thing (but on a much bigger scale) with Viner.
