Gareth is restoring his Dad’s old Colnago Super. The frame has been renovated and painted and a new silver Campagnolo Athena 11sp groupset is going to be fitted.
Gareth had a set of brand new black Record hubs and wanted them built into polished Archetype rims with silver CX-Ray spokes. A great wheelset, however black hubs would have looked so out of place in what is going to be a stunning modern rebuild of a classic frame.
I got hold of some sodium hydroxide, stripped the hubs down and removed the black anodisation before polishing them to a mirror finish and applying the classic Campag shield logos.
Pictures of the finished bicycle will be here soon! I promise!!
