I'm thinking of converting my early '70s Bottecchia to a three-speed. Still with drop bars, just change the driveline.
Anyone else taken this approach? I hear it was the done thing in the UK in pre-war times.
I think it would make a good early/late-season, bad-weather training bike. It's a fairly low-end frame so a bit of elemental exposure wouldn't bother me (or it).
