I purchased this gorgeous lightweight Italian racer from its original owner. As you can tell from the pictures, he took very good care of her and described the bike to me as a fine example of Italian art. I have to agree.

With the exception of the Brooks saddle, tape, and Giles Berthoud touring bag, this bike is all original; as far as I can tell, it rides as good as the day it came off the showroom floor. I can't even describe to you the sound of the campy drive train -- like a fine Swiss watch, you can tell these components were machined to perfection.
