Does this happen to any of you guys? Around the office (and apparently the coffeeshop too!!) I'm being referred to more and more as the 'vintage bike dude.' Well it's an honor and has its benefits.
A friend wants to surprise his wife for her birthday and had me look at her bike sitting in the garage with the hopes of me bringing it back to life - it's been there for well over 20 years. Best I can tell it's an early-to-mid 70s Legnano but don't know the model beyond that. Sticker says Campione del Mondo...but don't they all say that? Also the sticker immediately below saddle says:
Anybody know what SpA is? (forse vuol dire Societß per Anonimo??). These are pics before I put my grubby paws on it, but she cleaned up nicely and is now running well. I'll post after pics only if folks are interested in that sorta thing. But could ya help give me some bkgd on this bike to pass along? Are there are other pics I can post that will help give clues? Apparently she bought it when she lived in Milan - how cool.
I've never ridden a bike with Campagnolo components, and this Valentino Special RD shifts as smooth as butter. Mamma mia!!
