Rossin Pursuit Frame. *Update*

Got the frame cleaned up and rust free (most of the bit). Sorted the headset bearings and replaced a new bb (Campy Chorus).

I've also replaced the 650c fork with a 700c. I'll try restore the 650c fork as it's plagued with rust :( If not sandblast and repaint might b the only option.

With the "new" fork + seatpost + rust freeish

Got rid of large chunk of rust on the seatpost tubing area. Put the shine back. Now I need some sort of clear varnish to prevent / protect her from elements. Suggestion?

"new" fork + serviced headset w/ spacer

Gipiemme Strada 170mm crankset. Will be getting a more realistic chainring.

Campagnolo C-Record seatpost

More to come.

haha imperfection gives you soul.

Afterall my objtive of getting a vintage frame is to preserve it's charisma.

However if the rust returns then it leaves me no choice but to blast it.
