New here, but I have recently become interested in an old road bike I've been riding around at school.
My father rode this bike when he was in college. He does not ride it anymore so I took it to school. The registration sticker reads 1975, but he probably had it for a at least a few years before that.
All pictures can be found here
For those with dialup or just wanting to skip to some particular images:
Rear Dropout, Derailleur, and Cluster
The components I can read the names of are:
Campagnolo: shifters, front derailleur, and the overshift shield (so perhaps that whole cluster?). Balilla: brake calipers, brake levers (Corsa 61 set, it seems).
Gnutti : quick release skewer (and perhaps hubs).
Schwinn: rear derailleur.
Not pictured are Paturauo toe clips with Lapize straps. The headset has "OF MEGA" stamped around the top. I cannot find any information about the frame. The markings on the seatpost, downtube and headtube read "A CAMERA" (Italian) which makes researching on the Internet difficult...
I recognize many of these component manufacturers, but I cannot find anything on the frame. I do not know which compontents are original and which have been replaced. If anyone can help me identify this bike or provide any other information I would be grateful.
