I retired about a year ago and purchased I high end carbon bike and have been logging 150 to 200 miles a week and I ride with Team Velocity, a local club.
Late last year I ran across your website and was very inspired by the collection of Rossins. I was so moved by what I saw, I decided to restore my Rossin, piece by piece by piece.
The result is in the pictures. I have used the Rossin on a couple of rides, which has been an amazing feeling and it sure turns heads.
My wife does not want me to ride it but rather, put it on display in our living room!
Other notes.... My only regret is that I could not find some vintage rims so, I used a plain set of Mavic Open Pros however, I am still on the lookout for some old school rims in good condition.
I found a company that makes slotted cleats with a modern shoe hole pattern. This makes riding the bike a lot of fun! Last, I added a set Campy dust caps to the crank which you'll see in the pictures.
As a final note, very few parts are new. I opted to strip, polish, re-chrome, and re-anodize many of the components including well over 100 tiny nuts and bolts. The frame was stripped, re-chromed, and painted.
Excellent work Glen!
