I went to look at another $50 Marinoni ( My $50 Marinoni with early Campagnolo Chorus. ) yesterday. 58cm which is a bit tight for me but the bizzare thing is it has the same paint scheme as my bike only the head tube is blue.
Its a Special like my 1st but the grouppo is not Campy or Ofmega or anything Italian.
The bike has mostly Shimano Dura Ace with an unidentified seat post and a turbo saddle.
Did Shimano make an Italian threaded BB? I think this Marinoni may have been cobbled together somewhere in its life.
I realize this thread is worthless without pics but if I drag this Special home I will post them.
If you plan to part with it, do let me know. I regret selling my Special, even though it was quite profitable. For what it is worth, mine was from 1987 and also had a full Dura Ace group and the BB was Italian. Shipping would be a breeze since I am in Ontario
