    Here's a Tempesta, associated with Lino Tempesta, who built for Bianchi in the 1950s, and then got Guerciotti framebuilding going with his nephews, the Guerciotti brothers. and managed Guerciotti building...

    Seeing as how there is no such thing at this time, it may be awhile.

    Argh! Show your bikes' true colors by setting the appropriate white balance please.

    Here's an Eye-Talian for you.





    Ciocc Colibri in Columbus Nemo, outfitted with late 90's 9V Record and Shamal. There are pink accents in the paint job that goes with the pink wheel decals, although the accents aren't quite visible in this shot.

    Stein: that's a beautiful, rideable Reparto! If you ever decide to sell it, PM me first!

    VR: love the details of your Sabatini - did you do component painting yourself? Superb, and amazing that is all original and you are the original owner. Neat.

    CDM: BELLA! What year is that Masi, and what is the significance of the cork hanging from the Brooks?

    Funkflex: that's the most beautiful silver Tipo Corsa I've ever seen. Clean as a whistle; I'm jealous...

    There's some really beautiful stuff here; I hope this thread stays on Page One for the next month.

    all the silver shamals i have seen have the older flanged hubs. i want a set like yours for my tommasini so bad. if you ever get rid of them, let me know.

    or maybe you would trade for a set of 28 spoke wheels build with NOS campagnolo tubular rims and NOS silver hubs...

    Who knows what this really is. I think at the last gathering consensus was Centurion with Mediterranean roots.

    Whatever it's roots, it's foliage is in full-bloom

    I need to redo my other pics of this bike. Apparently, there was a distracting background...

    Gorgeous.

    Each and every one.

    My son and I sold our Supers this week.

    This is the first time in 30 years I haven't had a Colnago of some sort hanging from a hook for my enjoyment.

    I'm prepping my Master Extra Light for sale as well.

    I'm sure I'll get another "special" Colnago eventually, but in the meantime I can ride a friend's Extreme-C just about anytime.

    Grandis

    61cm Grandis, prolly about an 87 or 88, given to me by a friend- when he took delivery of the gloss black/yellow decal frame, he immediately had a custom repaint done, with chrome yellow Imron and blue and red splatter. it is still wearing the as original Campy Victory group, and i sourced some red ano Ambrosio 19 rims on Gipiemme hubs ... i raced a Grandis in the 80s (stolen) and so am happy to be back aboard one....some day will replace the drivetrain....but for now, its great

    OK, so it's not OEM. It's still Italian, by pedigree and builder.
    So shoot me. It is, however, a daily rider, in all kinds of weather.

    Sorry thirdgenbird, my pair is a sentimental keepsake from my racing years and would be one of the last few bike items I sell. Plus I've swore off gluing tubulars.

    But take heart! I've seen at least a few pairs of this type of Shamal through the years at swap meets and eBay. I almost got the last pair I saw except it was tubular and I've swore off gluing tubulars.

    ^ +1!

    Especially the two Bianchis - and that Masi hanging further back!

    That's one beautiful wall.
