Litespeed Tuscany arrived today

I bought the Tuscany on e-bay yesterday and a friend of mine was coming this way so he brought it to me. So far all I have done is put the cycle computer and pedals on it and take it for a short spin. I came right back and took off the killer seat and put my Terry Fly on it. Another short spin and it feels pretty good. I think I am going to have to add an extender to raise the handlebars. They seem to be a little low for me. More rides and more tweaking and I think it will be just fine. Heres she is.

I still think this was the best frame Litespeed ever made. But I have a weakness for classic geometry.
