So the bike came back with a new bottom bracket and the Campagnolo crankset (which I got on eBay for about a 90% discount.)
Here is the bike before I did anything, you can see how nice the paint looks. Its so glossy it still looks wet. Notice the dog having a seziure in the back ground.
I didn't really feel like driving all the way across town to get the steel fork painted, so i just sanded and painted it myself. I went with a light gray color and I think it came out great.
After adding the derailleur, tires, fork and stem.
I also put the new tires on. I bought some fat street tires to make the commute to school easier. The white dots you see is reflective tape for night riding, it'll light up the whole tire while moving. I also cleaned the cassette; which I always assumed was black--it turns out that it was silver, but due to neglect on my part it was black. whoops.
I spent the rest of the afternoon adding the chain (which took me far too long) and tuning the gears. All that is left is the breaks and bolting on some bits and pieces. More to come this weekend.
