BTW, that's a beautiful ciocc! The blue works really well on that bike.

That is a great pick up!!!

Yes, the Casati was a smidge too small, but this makes up for that.

I bet you are going to love this one.

...and yes, I am a chief enabler. Just ask Aaron.

Slick. I really don't think you should powder coat it black but, whatever you do, ride the hell out of it.

There was a Ciocc Mockba 80, that same color, smaller, on Chicago CL some weeks back. Though a lot of money (for me) at over $500, it looked very cool. Parts were a mixture including some Super Record, condition roughly similar to this one, ie some scratches but basically fine. I tentatively inquired about it but the seller sold it before we could meet up.

Sloar, now that you've seen it in person are you still thinking about a repaint?

Gotta love Ciocc and that one is a beauty (the bar tape maybe not so much). I bought mine in 82 or 83, still have it. Its really dark, almost black, blue with yellow decals. Pics someplace on this forum.

I've heard that the proper pronunciation of Ciocc is "choach". Is that right?

That one again? It's a very popular question!
Lucky for you there's this video (scroll down to "...restoration Pt. 1") and let THE MAN himself tell you how it's pronounced:
