My buddy Mike has finally given in and is going to build up the NOS Bertoni TSX frameset he bought from our shop almost two years ago (and that I'm still kicking myself for letting it get away - it's my size.) I helped him put together a pretty complete, all-alloy Centaur 10s group from eBay and other sources and then he just sat on it. I've been hounding him mercilessly to get moving on it.

Well, he brought it in yesterday for a face-and-chase, and somebody back when suggested I "document" the build.

Here's the "before."

Beautiful. Looking forward to the build-up.

One of the local shops back then was a dealer and I wish I had bought the SL tubed version. Instead I bought a Bertoni marked Vitus 979 as a donor parts bike back around '86. That 52cm frame has been hanging in my garage for the past 22 years.

First step.

Our service manager personally did the face and chase on my day off.

Here's a few pics with the Record headset and Centaur bb installed. Unfortunately, artificial light and flash don't do the colors of this frame justice.
