I've been looking off and on for a nice vintage road bike to convert (no mutilations, grinding etc) to SS to be my about town / social events bike. I've recently come across a 1971 Bottecchia which is beautiful ... ok, it could be beautiful. It's certainly flashy with chrome lugs and chrome chainstays. The parts are a mixed bag of vintage Campy stuff, most of which I would remove / replace during the rebuild. I have access to good advice / tools / help for the build up, but have no expereince with this bike maker. I understand that some of Bottecchia's frames are nice, and some are crap. Any idea what this chromed out 1971 might qualify as? I have another bike for road use, so its ability as a racer isn't important. The guy is asking $300 ... some of which I might be able to get back by selling the components, but I'm not banking on that. I'm pretty sure it's over prices, but even that's Ok as it could be so dang purty when finished.
