Inside the 4 pivot brakes, these brakes where so far ahead of the time, and imo the best brakes ever made.

Indeed, nice. If It were mine I would treat it to a set of amber wall period correct tyres, white hoods/cables and a black Concor.

Amber Walls i do have just dont use, as for the white hoods Campag never made white hoods for the early ergo levers and the ergo levers only ever came with black cables.

I do have a white Concor Rolls, bur as it is over 20 years old it is a bit to hard to do ant decent mileage on.

Thanks for all the positive comments, i thought it may have been a bit to old for this forum. Although it has now been retired and been replaced with something carbon

Don't retire this bike, far too nice. It's always nice to see great bikes like these out on the roads(especially if the rider can stuff others riding modern exotica)

Totally agree. It's a stunning machine. That chrome is superb. I'm under 30 and this sort of bike looks miles better that the more up to date bikes. Much more stylish than the rolling advertising boards that pass for bikes and frames these days. Only thing I'd change is to get black or gum wall tyres - but that's personal preference.
