Tiny Benotto score

As many of you know from my Tiny Bikes thread, Ive been looking for something nice for my wife. Been a real tiring hunt trying to find something small.
Finally came across this 48cm Benotto and my friend in Toronto picked it up for me today. Going to get it in a few weeks.
Real happy to have found it as it should fit my wife perfect.

Just thought I'd share since we're so happy to have found it and no longer scouring the planet for something small enough.

That is a beautiful bike! Congratulations! I'm sure your wife will love it. Pretty soon she won't be collecting shoes, but vintage road bikes! :-) Nice find!

Nice score! I'm also on the fence for a nice 48 cm bike, my girlfriend wants to ride along for a try to see what I'm up to in all that lycra when I leave her for a few hours on my bike
