Hey guys, I'm trying to find out some more information about my girl's new purchase of this mint Benotto. From digging on here I'm learning that its probably a 1985 model. A friend found it new in the box (Mexico was all over that box apparently), was building it up and on a test ride, he rode it 1/2 a block before the mis-adjusted cups tightened up and he walked it home. between all his other bikes, it took him 3 years to get around to tightening the cups, and he never rode it. The bike is mint, runs excellently. It's got the Zeta tubed steel frame, Campy throughout. I'm concerned after reading about some frame failures on this model at the bottom bracket. She's planning on using the bike, not as a commuter, but as a sunday afternoon special, or the bike that she rides when she wants to go for a real ride. I'm hoping that it'll hold up.
Can anyone tell me a little more about this bike?
