    Bottecchia Questions?

    I'm just wondering about the brand and if it's worth the hundred. Might be a present for my brother lol. Thanks.

    Yes! It looks as if the saddle might be worth close to the asking price, if its a Brooks that is. Looks like a Bottecchia professional I had from 72 but the crankset looks a little different. I would have been there already and grabbed it!
    Bikes are cool, even the dumb ones.

    Definitely worth 100 bucks! the rear derailleur looks like campagnolo valentino extra, so low end. But still...

    Cool, I'm trying to get some better pictures of basically everything because the seller is about 2 hours away. I'd rather not have to drive that far for disappointed.
