Good Job João! My first bike was a green Caloi, same model, smaller and non-folding. My second one was a red Berlineta, identical to yours (well, no fancy lights or rear deraileur, but you got the idea...).

Obrigado por dividir esse projeto conosco.

Actually ... My first was a Caloi Berlineta folding ..
but the color was blue and white ...

But this old bike was purchased in Old Iron ...
for U.S. $ 40.00 ... Then she retired from 3 to 4 months old.
Painted yellow and white colors because they are gay and catalog of the season.

I am happy and contented
when restoring a
Old folding bike
remembers the past cheerful
adult day was when a child.

When this happens, it means that the restore was successful.
