    I'd like to see some close up, clear and detailed pics of the lugs (headtube, seat cluster and bottom bracket). I received an email in response to a frame ID of my own and was sent an interesting tidbit of info which I'll post below:

    "I bought an orange frame from California (since traded for another frame, discussed below) that was part of an unbranded batch brought into the LA area in the early-mid 70s, and subsequently decaled with a private label ... Ferrari. I would not expect to see any others with this label, since it was the first owner, Fred Ferrari, who put his (wife's) name on it. It has all the same bells and whistles as the Guerciotti above, right down to the distinguishing huge gaping cut-outs from under the b.b. shell. However, the steer tube is not *****d inside (long before the release of SLX, all Columbus SL frames had this feature, at least since the 1950s), and it was a tad heavier than a typical SL frameset. I still have poor quality pics of it here:
    <http://www.wooljersey.com/gallery/v/...Ferrari_Fixed/>
    Two pages of pics ... click on any thumb to see medium, then click again for closer view."


    Maybe yours is another one of the above Ferrari's? The gent who wrote me the email has found a lot of frames with nearly identical features which were made by an Italian firm called Losa...Does your bottom bracket measure 73mm across? What size is the seatpost? More pics!

    found this on velospace....

    Technotrat was an Italian builder that made piles of good and bad frames branded as Sarroni, Ferrari, Europa and others in Australia and later manufactured for De Bernardi. It's an ok frame, made with Falck leggera tubing, a bit heavy but it's a big frame so who cares.

    I know Colnago made a limited run of Ferrari bikes last year. Maybe it wasn't the first time?

    Colnago and Ferrari have had a relationship for decades. I'm sure the OP's bike isnt a Colnago/Ferrari as one would expect them to be red....

    Had an acquaintance whose grandfather had a small bike business back in Italy. Named Ferrari. Small operation sounded like. Don't know anything else other than he sent his grandson a custom fitted road bike that did not get ridden.

    You ought to be ashamed of that - it's not good enough to be a Colnago, yes - but it certainly isn't bad enough to fixie.

    What a cool bike. It looks amazing the way it is and has a bunch of interesting components on it. Turning this bike into a generic fixy would honestly be a shame.

    Having said that, if you do decide to "fix" it and want to get rid of that Zeus crankset (odd BCD that will mean you'll have a hard time getting new rings), PM me because I could use a spare for the 1967 Zeus I just picked up.

    Thanks!

    I have this exact frame too, except no blue detailing, i think my bike had a early 90's overhaul with cheap shimano groupset, "skylark" derailleur and cheap Taiwanese stem and bars. i wouldn't mind finding out some more history on the origin of this frame

    If their isn't the world famous prancing pony emblem anywhere on that bike, than I seriously doubt it has anything at all to do with the real Ferrari. And as somebody else said, it would certainly be "Ferrari Red"...

    i saw a rider on a lamborghini road bike the other day. It was pretty hideous, similar looking to a supercycle medalist bike you'd see at canadian tire or a department store. The funny part is he was all dressed up in bike clothes and matching gear and sunglasses and whatnot like his bike was some hot sh*t. It's funny cause i'm sure the bike clothing he had on was worth more than the bike. I chuckled for a bit, then blasted by him on my pinarello, he ate me dust alright....
