Pegoretti Duende

Just thought I'd show you a picture of a really beautiful Italian steel road machine that I worked on today. My friend Richard got me to order this Pegoretti frameset in and built it for him a few years ago but, and because it was in today getting the new handlebars, stem and tape sorted I thought I'd take the opportunity to take some pictures of it.

Dario Pegoretti is a genius framebuilder, and this Duende is a stunning example of his work. It is mainly Campagnolo Chorus equipped, with Mavic Open Pro/Chris King wheels I built, Reynolds carbon fork, Thomson seatpost and stem, and Deda classic bars...mmmmmm...
