Romolo Lazzaretti

I purchased this bike a few months ago and haven't done anything with it yet. This is more so out of fear of damaging anything as the person who sold it to me did so at a great price and for a specific reason. He wanted to see this bike back to its old self and not parted out. When I purchased it, it was in pretty decent, not to say that it did need work. I have yet to start on anything really just some work on individual parts.

Almost everything on the bike was Campagnolo Nuovo Super Record. The seat, stem and handlebars were Cinelli. The bottom bracket and drop outs were also Campagnolo, which leads me to think that this was a pretty serious bike for its time. I can't find anything as far as a serial number, or identifying aspects besides the badge. There is a Columbus seal on the seat tube. The badge has a portrait of a man with Romolo Lazzaretti arching over the top and smaller unreadable text. On the bottom of the badge there's a small wolf facing left. As far as I can tell the white accents on the bike were added on later.

What should I do with this bike? I've never restored anything myself and I don't want to damage anything any further. I've done some google searches and it's only lead me to find this http://www.lazzarettibikes.com.br/historico-01.html. Any information would be awesome!

Sorry I'm only seeing this now. Did you get some info on the bike?

Lazzaretti is one of Rome's longest-established shops. They build some nice frames. More recently, I've seen some sub-standard stuff with their name on it, but I've never seen a poor-quality Lazzaretti road bike. I've actually got my eye on one at the moment. Let me know if you need more info and I'll try to help.

The frame has been repainted, so I think your options are quite open. From the details of the frame it is from before the Super Record era. Record and Nuovo record, maybe even Gran Sport. Images with the wheels out give no hint of the brake reach required.

My gut feeling is the bottom bracket windows are not original.

Which might lead one to question the originality of the top tube and bottom bracket braze-on guides as well.

Quite possible. With the slap dash of the repaint, it is a toss, adding braze ons are not seen with quickie paint. An image of the drive side rear dropout might point to a date a bit. One thing I noted a while ago was that Campagnolo made the braze on cable guides way before they caught on with builders.

Yep - probably because pro racers shied away from braze-ons generally because they "added weight" to the frame. It's circa 1972 that you start to see them on pro bikes. But my '69 Masi had them, and they were left on when the bike was restored because they were plausibly original. I think they would have been more common on higher end and custom frames, because they do add a bit to the build cost.

Guys, I could be completely wrong here, but I've been talking with the OP, and I think he's the person who's repainted it. I've seen the silver paint job pictures and it all seems very much in keeping with the Lazzarettis I've encountered. As for the cable guides, it's a small builder, so I'd imagine it was to spec originally. Again, could be wrong. OP is contacting the shop to find out more. Maybe.
