Check out this beauty. It apparently was custom built as a lightweight edition and also has unusual BB drilling with seven holes.

That's interesting, I only spot a single large chainring. Evidently someone not quite sold on "ten speeds?"

I note a very generous use of brake cable. RED brake cable. I don't recall ever encountering that color before. Any idea where it came from?

This is not my bike - I wish. I don't know the owner but I had a URL for the picture. There was considerable discussion about the bike on the classicrendevous list.

As for the red brake cables I have had them in the past and will be needing to pick up some more when I put my Cinelli back together. I don't know a source off hand but if I find one I will let you know.

Yep. Red is pretty easy to find. Been using it for years.
