The "Goose" - my Guecerotti

I've got her basically cleaned up and ready to go. The chrome isn't prefect and I swapped out the beat up camp brakes for aero (shimano 600). I hope to get some time in the saddle as soon as I feel better. BTW - those fancy saddle bags that clip on don't work with Brooks. The Pedro I bought was black with a yellow stripe. I'll add some more jpegs later.

Looks very nice. You did a really nice job. The all blue looks sharp.

It looks very good. That is a pretty big frame, what size is it?

It's 62cm, my Miyata is 63. My bikes run 58cm - 63cm.

The goose weighs around 22 lbs with the Brooks - similar to the Paramount (and the Prelude/Premis I used to own).

Looks great! I've always wanted a Guerciotti.

My Tommasini has same color scheme -- blue, yellow bar tape and cables, blue tires, and I even am using the same Pedro black-and-yellow seat bag you mentioned. Not twins, but maybe cousins.

I like your aero brake levers, it's a change I'm thinking about. I have Modolo brakes and pretty much hate 'em.

Anyway, great job --

Thanks, I guess you didn't see that beautiful 50 year anniversary Paramount with gold plated forks on ebay this week.
With the goose filling up the last stable slot I'm actually wondering if I need to reacquire the Schwinn Premis. Then again, one bike a day is a fair rotation.
