    70'S or 80's Italian road bike

    Please, I need some help identifying a 70'S or 80's Italian road bike. It has 3 stickers on it stating it's name "Capri Sport", that it was made in Italy, and the head badge says "Cicli Capri Sport". It is a nice lugged frame but has no tubing identification. Now I know this may have been a mass produced frame that could have been labeled later but I don't think that is common with Italian bikes let alone ones labeled "made in Italy". If anyone knows anything about this brand it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

    We'll wait for pics for a final determination, but in general SPORT is a name tacked onto lower models across many brands.

    the archives provide: http://www.bikeforums.net/showthread...ht=capri+sport
    if yours looks like this one, it's a bike boom gaspiper that bears frame detail similarities with many low-end Italian frames from that era. Only unique features are the French (Simplex Prestige) drivetrain and unusual cottered crank with 5-pin chainrings...unique but not really worth much. Hopefully your Capri Sport is at least a step above this example.

    Straight-cut lower seat lug (maybe BB shell, too, but hard to tell), stamped rear dropouts. The front wheel's probably original, but wingnuts usually aren't as good (ie. upper scale) as quick release. All point to a lower end frame. Sorry if you thought you had a sleeper. But enjoy riding it. That's what bikes are for.

    The only saver might be if you have a 26.8-27.2 seatpost in there. But it's probably 26.0 or less.

    Just a note, yesterday I took the whole bike apart, repacked the head set & BB, put on new cranks ( it had the cotterd) and swaped the seat & back wheel. I just wanted to know about the frame. Thanks
