Now, folks that know me will know that I am no stranger to building vintage bikes, in fact I can’t think of anything I enjoy more, however when my pal Len said he had a project for me to undertake I had no idea what was in store.
Knowing my love for and knowledge of the vintage bicycle he has asked me to build this, his recently acquired ebay purchase of a Colnago Master Crono.
He wanted me to build him a ‘fixie’ out of it. I, of course, said no, no way. The only way I would get involved was if he would agree to me building it up the way it was intended… A super fast geared time trial machine. So, after much banter and a phone call to the bank manager he said “OK”.
I have no idea how much it will cost ( not that it’s my hard earned that I’ll be spending ) or how long it will take, I am just happy he asked me because now I can’t wait to get started, but wait… Dude, where are the god damned forks?
Anyway, hold tight the disc wheel and full super record. Happy days.
