Ken's classic Italian Racer

 Ken came in on Saturday to show us his Italian classic Racer of the 1980s made from Columbus tubing.  Its a stunning machine with fantastic lug work that provides a strong finish.  The frame was built in his garden shed and the whole bike weighs less than 20lbs.  There are a number of modern compromises to the not least of which is the chain-set that has a practical 50/36 coupled with the wide ratio 6 speed cluster and the pedals.  The components are nearly all Campagnolo.  Ken is looking for some period Campag shifters of the 80 vintage to replace the existing 60s model.
More information will follow.  Enjoy the images
