    Learco Guerra bike

    I am considering purchasing the bike. The owner brought it from Italy around 20 years ago. It has campy stuff with generation 2 campy delta brakes. The construction is what I'm wondering about. I have been looking for a nice campy equiped Italian bike, but I always assumed nice lug work was standard. This bike has no lugs, but is beautiful none the less. Can any of you tell me anything about this bike? I have not been able to come up with much from the web. Thanks.

    Nice bike ! More pics please. Fillet brazed Max tubeset perhaps ? Well worth buying if it fits and the price is OK.

    From the picture the top tube and fork looks like are columbus max, Do you have better pictures? the bike looks like racing geometry and stuff.

    By the way the bike wont be light, columbus max bike weights a ton. But the ride is super nice. For the right price that bike is a nice keeper because is rare.

    ps: the seatstays and downtube are max too... nice find man , who knows who actually made the bike because the guy died in the 60's, same situation than with coppi bikes is only a name. Good bike anyways

    I agree it looks alot like a MAX setup but more and better pics are needed. I do disagree with MAX bikes weighing a ton. The tubing is not any heavier than SL, SLX or TSX. http://equusbicycle.com/bike/columbus/columbuschart.htm

    The fork crown and seatlug look alot like my Bianchis

    Thanks for the comments. The bike is currently at a bike shop on consignment. I talked with the older Italian gentleman and plan to meet him there this week. I'll take more pictures. He mentioned that it was rare and mint and he wanted a grand. Probable too steep for me, but it does fit although I would have to get a shorter stem and new tubular tires.
