This Columbus frame from the 80ies was so close ending up on the junkyard due to a very sturdy bottombracket. It's a legacy from a family member. I repainted it and added the original Faggin decals. New wheels and fork because of a bike crash. But I still think it looks kinda retro/vintage. Not the lightest road bike on planet earth but on flat, hilly danish roads it rolls really well :D . Anybody who knows when this Shimano 105 group was introduced to the market ?

    I had 105 like that on my first custom bike and I think that was round about 1986 ?
