|On display in my brand new birthday-gifted Park stand!|
|Original bars. Not quite the original levers though.|
|Here you can see the headset is a bit different than what is normally seen on the later Takhions.|
|Beautiful proprietary downtube shifters. The drivetrain was mostly Campagnolo, though exactly what gruppo it was is still a bit of a mystery. It came with a Triomphe derailleur, but whether or not that is the original, I don't know.|
|Front brake, with a beautiful lugged fork crown.|
|Campy bottom bracket.|
|This frame is in pretty lovely condition.|
|Columbus tubing, and a derailleur clamp-on lug of sorts.|
|Internally routed brake cables.|
|And, of course, the signature and the bottom bracket cutout that makes it a true Takhion.|
However, my priority continues to be on the newest member of my family, which is getting a visit to the powder coater tomorrow!
|All sanded and filed!|
|Close up - it's certainly not perfect, but it will act as a reminder that this was my first frame and that I have a lot to learn.|
After this one comes back from the powder coater, it's getting a headset. From there, it will take me some time to gather the parts I need, but I'll get there!
