    I can see long point lugs up top, so that at least makes me think it's worth a look - despite the turkey levers.

    There's something seriously weird going on with the rear derailleur, though. I see a hanger, but it's attached behind it for some reason. Maybe a replacement RD with an integral hanger, and the guy really didn't know what to do.

    But I've got no real insight to the builder.

    Adorni was a pretty famous rider.

    Hehe, this is my new bike

    Seller was asking for 60 euro so I didn't bother for more pics. Nice tight geometry and Nuovo gran sport group - brake calipers, cranks, front mesh, seat post, BB and headset, 3ttt stem and bars (Tdf 42cm).

    For the price of 60 euro it came with a stuck seat post of course. Fortunately, oxygen and propane ignited together solved this and the post came out salvaged. Need a polish tho.

    No rust but the paint is faded and now gone where the torch was playing. Repaint soon.

    Hi Juvela
    I have no clue on tubing so far. Seat post is 26.2mm and there was only Cinzia decal on seat tube where tubing decals usually are.
    I will check for any markings when i strip it for paint, doubt it there will be any tho. First need to reproduce the decals

    hello skyda,

    thanks very much for the response. that pillar size would tend to suggest a quality plain gauge tubeset such as zeta or z50. perhaps one of the falck sets...

    since she is slated for a respray you may discover a mark...

    iirc adorni had a long career as a directeur sportif after his competitive days closed out.

    Hi there folks, quick update from the Adorni.
    Paint is done, decals are done - I reproduced it myself. Not the best quality but pretty, pretty decent.

    Didn't find any sign of tubing marks but since I put about 4-5k km on it I can tell the tubes are stiff!
    The bike is quite a beater just what I needed - a beautiful bike to ABUSE.

    Still need some minor touches here and there. Have to find some mid-range campa rd. All parts got heavy polished, rims are Mexico 68 on deore mtb hubs 7sp. Brake levers are Diacompe. All other parts are original. I routed the cables internally through the handlebars. Saddle is salvaged san marco laser.


    The bike came with its original Reg Aerodyn bottle cage. If some one could suggest a replica bottle or any other bottle that could probably fit there, I would like to use it.

    Here are few pictures, mobile phone quality excuse me again
