Freshly bought LE CROCO

Yesterday I bought this Le Croco bike and just thought I'd post some pictures as those are not very common.If anyone has informations on this maker it would also be nice. It was custom built in Montreal and has some nice features. The previous owner said It was built as a Derosa copy. It has a nice mix of parts including mavic hubs and ofmega mistral crankset. The bike is shown partially assembled as I havent had the time to rebuilt it yet (the original owner had ''fixed'' it).

ENJOY!

Very nice, indeed. Thanks for sharing.

I'd love to see more pictures of the De Rosa, too, even though it isn't technically C & V.

Yes, that paint looks flawless from here, and just that one decal not quite right.

How far back are you going to turn back the page on the 'fixed' job?

Thanks for the comments! I am planning to change the bars to normal drop bars since the previous owner chopped the originals... I will probably put the same color bar tape, or white bar tape and put red cables. The seller had kept all the parts so it is going to be a quick job. The paint is pretty perfect, except for a couple of paint chips on the top tube. Old fat guy, I added some pictures of the derosa in the original thread.
