an oldie but a goodie


i picked up this frameset last fall and finally got her all built last weekend. she's circa '85/'86 vintage so she's kinda old... like me. initially i built her up with aero levers but i didn't like the look so i switched them out for some retro suntour superbe levers instead. i think they go well with this vintage of frame. i really dig the paintjob, in the sun it has a pearlescent sheen to it. overall i'd say she turned out pretty sweet... so i think i will call her dulce.
