I use google English.
I use a Sony Alpha, but it's not the same thing.

I'm sorry I'm answering now. I have described all parameters under the pictures.
All photos are taken from the hand.

In the beginning, returned to me after a long time. Well used and in need of attention, but complete and pretty much as it was when I sold it. This is my mid 80's Rossin Record, the superbike of the day.



After the restoration. Frame is restored, new Campagnolo drivetrain is fitted, bespoke wheels look vintage but are new tech and stupendously fast, other vintage touches have been applied to be respectful of the heritage of this machine. It easily sticks with modern machinery which confuses those who have no idea what this bike actually is.



Even more bling. Hand turned alloy bar end plugs.



In the wild. Returned to regular duty again.

Here's more on the tale of Bling, my 1980's Rossin Record, including more pictures.

She's a beauty Keith and I enjoyed reading your tale of bling. Looks like at one stage she wore a Shimano 600 Ultegra rear derailleur (recognised because it's the type currently on my colnago-stickered bike). Image #3 shows her off to good effect and highlights the quality custom paint job - I can see why you are very pleased. TFS and best of luck with extracting those last drops of performance from the engine!
C & C always welcome

Certainly a beauty. Lovely unicolor frame which certainly tells her age. Love the new wheels and light wall tyres. The front blade and derailleur look a bit out of place. A great accomplishment though, TFS    .

A keen eye, that's a tricolour Shimano 600 indexed derailleur I put on there at some point when I first owned it. Way back then I rode this bike every day and the original Camapgnolo drivetrain eventually came to the end of the road. Indexed shifting was the new tech of the day - you know how it is.

Because I wanted to ride this bike as much as possible, going retro was out. Neo retro however, the Campagnolo Potenza groupset in polished alloy was the only real choice. Its not quite the aesthetic of old Record (or even close to be honest), but it works well enough and most people have no idea anyway. Plus it sparkles most pleasingly in the sunlight. It does require effort to keep it looking on point which is why I suspect running gear and wheels on new bicycles are now mostly black.
