    Yeah, that's one of the features that caught my eye, also. I'm not really familar with torpados, but I think it might be a fairly low end model, I'll have to do some checking around. After checking everything for fit/tightness, I lowered the saddle, switched out the pedals, and sent the wife off around the block. She loved it and said it shifted great, Now I get to clean it up, touch up the few chips in the paint, wrap the bars and lube a few areas.

    Here is a Basso with Campy front & rear derailleurs & shifters. Everything else was mostly Cambio and Cambio Rino, cranks, stem, seat post, saddle. Forks were stamped with Cambio and fitted with Modolo Speedy (early version) brakes. Rescued it off my LBS euthanasia truck for $70 and spruced it up with new tape, cables & housings. Extremely light for a 59 cm bike. The Rino hardware is lighter than campy.

    I had to put my cheaters on, but it looks like it says Competition? There's something about that bike that I like, a LOT? Weird because that is my least favorite era of Peugeot paint schemes. It just has that coolness factor, and speaks to me.,,,,BD


    It almost looks like the chain needs to be popped, to correct a cross chain that severe! Definitely WAY too short!

    Picked up this Serotta Dave Scott tricolorado today with full 600 tri color, phil hubs. Just needs an overhaul, tires and a shim for the bars.
    Don't know what I am going to do with it as of yet.

    Yes, I'm very lucky to find this bike in such of condition in flea market and its not a stolen bicycle. I paid my previous Gitane frame for 3€, and my LeJeune 4€ all from the same flea market.

    Too bad I will not have time to clean/polish this bike, I only have time to take it a part and put inside the box and shipped to Ireland. I'm moving back to Ireland next week
    My Gitane frame and my Herrera inside the box

    Another $10 flea market find that sat in the garage untouched until Friday. I thought it was going to be parts bike but boredom made me pull it out and get it ready for a CL flip
