My Teve Blad corsa extra frame is SOLD. I always wanted to ride round Tasmania. Looks like my bike will anyway.
And another Motorola (Corsa Extra, with race number brazeon, no less) is on its way. Now what am I going to do with the old one?

Finally finished my corsa extra build. Built up with Dura ace 7200 (minus shifters, which are croque D'aune as Im waiting on a suitable screw for the RHS shifter, couldn't get friction).

It's not OK and you'll have to give me your Merckx Strada as compensation. :D

Thanks mate. I have a Coppi set up as a drop bar Campag equipped roady, so the Merckx is just my bike path cruiser. Gets a few looks at the coffee shop!

LOL I was wondering about that. Lovely bike, but those bars look a bit out of place with the aero wheels. :D

The rear wheel is a very ancient XTREME tri spoke with the loudest freewheel I have ever heard. As soon as I stop pedalling the walkers clear the path for 50 metres ahead. I have a bell but never use it. The front wheel is just a Velocity B43. I forget where I nicked the handlebars from but they are very comfy for cruising :D
