That's a good looking steedAs suspected, I did have a complete Campagnolo Record BB, including branded crank bolts and dust caps. After dialing it in and attaching the Gipiemme crankset, it was given a spin and it kept going for a ridiculous amount of time, The best part of this was that the spindle and crankset matched-up to make a perfect chainline. Such a great find in the BB bin.
The Atax stem was still a bit of a question, to polish or not to polish? I experimented with a few ideas and since it was already media blasted, it just got a little fine steel wool treatment that was followed by a cleaner car wax.
The Pivo Bars were something that I had experimentally polished up after they were acquired a few years ago and were plug-and-play, except for wrapping. Newbaum's cloth tape is my jam and they wrapped nicely, completed with some chromie plugs from my Eurotrash DooDad bin.
The Gipiemme seatpost was just a little dirty and oxidized, so it got the same treatment as the stem. The Brooks didn't need anything, other than a little pre-use leather treatment and attachment.
