My first full campy bike- a '71 Gitane Super Corsa- never appreciated it then and most of the campy ended up on the Colnago frame I bought a couple of years after and then wrapped around the front end of a Chevy in 1978- but I sold the gitane frame sometime about '75.
the 1974 Silver Paramount track bike my parents gave me for my 21st birthday- The great low drop steel bars didn't last a year before I wrapped them around a steel fence support at the Northbrook velodrome, in "the biggest pile-up anybody there had ever seen" I'd got caught up in, and I was with a frat brother who was also injured, so I ended up having to drive the 300 miles home all scarred up-
Here we are about 1980-
I sold it on consignment in a bike shop in Torrance in 1984 when I retired and knew I'd probably never hang onto it trying to live in L.A.
