After successfully thinning the herd I have inadvertently got back into C&V. For €180 I have an Olmo in my size, Columbus SLX tubing and a nice chrome Columbus Laminati fork, full 8-speed Campy STI groupset (are they called Ergos?), Campy headset and BB, and a wrecked tubular wheelset.
The frame has cleaned up very nicely indeed. Miami Vice style pink, green and yellow with chrome on the rear NDS chainstay. Photos to follow, but Mrs Barchetta has hidden the digital camera somewhere. The only clue to a date is the 3T stem, which is autographed Giuseppe Olmo and gives the 1939-1989 Anniversary. I assume the groupset is a later edition.
So, did I do well? Keep at all costs, or clean up and sell on...? I´ll post up photos when I find the camera (just going to look for it now). I´m thinking of getting a nice 8-speed Vento wheelset, white tyres and bar tape, and rocking the whole 80s thing.
I have no experience with Campy stuff so it´s all a bit of a journey into the unknown.
Any Olmo experts out there, advice appreciated. I believe the Columbus SLX is top of the line - correct? Certainly feels bloody light stripped down for cleaning.
