Specialized Allez 2005, bought on Ebay for £250- absolutely awful purchase! hundreds of problems with it- only managed a £50 refund from the guy, so built it up again on a bit of a budget- new drivetrain £50, new wheels £110 (Fulcrum 7s).
The crown of the fork is white because it was corroded, so I stripped it back and brushed away all of the corrosion- the cheapest paint was white!

Wheels: Fulcrum Racing 7
Fork: Specialized Carbon FACT
Shifters: Shimano Sora
Frame: 2005 Specialized Allez Intl. Double
Crankset: Sora
Chainrings: Stonglight Dural 53/39
Chain: Shimano HG-50 8speed
Cassette: HG-50 Tiagra 8 speed
Rear mech: Tiagra 9speed short cage
Front mech: Sora 8 speed
Callipers: Front unbranded, rear Tiagra
