    My son got the Guerciotti out of the garage

    After years (I went back to finish school and to get an MBA) of sitting in the garage, my son decided to get the Guerciotti tuned and started riding it. I took it for a spin and got hooked again.
    So my son inherited the Guerciotti and I picked up a Casati for a 1K. So nice to ride again…can’t believe my Son pulls me now http://www.bikeforums.net/images/smilies/smile.gif

    I can't quite make out whether you or your son (or your bike) sat in the garage all this time. But it's great that you both are riding!

    That's a beautiful Casati!

    I love the white finish and the nice details.

    Do you happen to know the tubeset?

    Sweet.

    I have a Casati Gold Line S that I have been trying to sell.

    After seeing yours, maybe I should hold on to her after all.

    I really like your bike.

    Any chance of a profile shot, showing the drive side please?

    Yeah, well, that's because he's got Dura Ace SIS while you've got lowly Campy SR on your Casati.

    That's a great looking bike. The internal cable routing on the chain stay is very slick.

    Nice to hear of this sort of thing. My grandson likes to ride - anything - and longs for the day, when he can have his own road bike. Funny thing is, the moment he saw this one...


    ...he wanted it. It did not occur to him, for a single nano-second, that the bike would not fit.

    Great for you and your son, and nice to hear that another old bicycle will rise again.

    Perfection is an apt name for the bike, don't you think?

    Again, very nice bike for the money.

    Just finished a rebuild on my Italian bike this morning. These white paint jobs are stunning on a sunny day!

    Interesting.....it takes an MBA to graduate from a Guerciotti to a Casati??
    Much easier to graduate with French bikes, I guess.....

    I see a "white Italian steed" theme in the works. Nice bike. Are those Royal Gran Compe brakes?
