Putting it all together
as usual they had done a beautiful job.
I had contacted Liberati in Rome to see if they had
any original decals left, they did not, but they were very
interested in seeing the bike when I had finished.
The original Liberati ship Rome 1950's.
After painting the bike, I left it to sit for a month,
as I find the two pack base coat clear coat system
benefits from a little hardening time.
Then it was time for the assembly....
...which resulted in this.
I had also tracked down a couple of original Cicli Liberai
jerseys over the last 18 months.
Some nice pantographing and quality work from
Kustom Chrome, NOS set of Campagnolo shifters.
The very pretty seat cluster that originally made me take
on this project.
Campagnolo brake with OMAS and Mathauser
No over heating brakes here.
San Marco saddle with alloy rails, 314 grams.
I thought the Steel Campagnolo head set set looks just right
with the chrome lugs, so no light alloy head set used.
