    Italvega and Austro-daimler - Columbus and Reynold 531 content

    Got one hell of a deal for the 2 bikes. Just thought I'd share. They will probably be cleaned up and sold for college tuition costs...

    Very nice haul. The Italvega's the better bike given that it's a SuperLight or similar model, should be all Columbus tubing and has the better wheels, too. Campy Racing Triple is a modern replacement, but nothing wrong with a triple if you ride in hilly country. The AD (3 main tubes 531) will clean up to make a decent rider, and certainly a frame that appeals to those who like a longer TT. Both have rear-view mirrors and (horrors!)a kickstand on the Italvega! Got to lose that stuff quick.

    The frame is going to clean up surprisingly well. There's very little rust, no dents or dings. The components such as headset, cable guides, etc will probably need a soak in oxalic acid. I'll update with pictures once I'm done.

    **also, it's an Italvega Super Speciale.
