Early last Spring I was busy doing this and that at the Bicycles for Humanity annual Pancake Breakfast. As things started to wind down, I met a fellow who we shall call Ed. Ed is a local politician but I chatted with him anyway.
As it turned out, Ed had purchased a brand new Italian bicycle from the builder himself in Firenze, Italy. The bike, a G. Puccini, what ever that is? Well, yesterday an email showed up in the In Box, and Ed had brought the bicycle back from his dad's place in the USA.
The bike features Campagnolo drops, front and rear as well as a lovely old Campagnolo steel tapered crank set. Universal Model 68 brakes handle the slow down chores. Anyway...
Does anyone know anything about this old Italian road bicycle. Apparently it is of 1971 or 1972 vintage. And, of course, it does not fit me. Here are a couple of shots and any help will be appreciated. You might even get a Christmas card...
