L'Eroica build is finished

I am pleased  to say that the Raleigh team TI is now complete and ready to roll. Its been a really enjoyable winter project and as business begins to pick and workloads increase, I'm chuffed that its now sat ready for its maiden shake down ride. So its resplendent with a complete Campagnolo Super Record group set, sourced from various countries across the globe including America, Italy, Germany, Hungary and of course the UK. Campyoldy was a great source of information as well as some reasonably priced NOS parts, I cant recommend him enough and a lovely chap to talk too.
The only part not included in the group set was the head set, which is a Tange Levin Campag copy. I couldn't justify some of the secondhand prices that were being asked for an original item. The Tange looks the part and works.  Any way here are some photos of the complete bike.
