Campagnolo Gruppo!

This morning I scored! I purchased an early 80's Campagnolo group for my "new" Kvale from Switzerland. It is pretty much complete, less seatpost and pedals. This is not an issue as I have a set of Campagnolo Superleggeri pedals and a set of nice Mavic Open Pro rims waiting for a home. a proper 27.2 Campy post may take a little longer. The only other things I have to source now are bars and stem - probably should both be Cinelli for a fast bicycle of the period, and a saddle. A Brooks Team Professional saddle or a Brooks Swallow would be nice, though expensive. Maybe I'll get lucky.

How about a nice Concor. One of my all time favorite sadddles, comfortable, and Italian.

True, very true. And I have a couple of them myself - all beat to hell though. Would be nice to keep it Italian.
