Just posted a new thread in vintage bikes (should perhaps have put it in appraisals?) concerning an 80s marinoni. Take a look if that interests you. I'm posting here because not knowing all that much about bikes, but being a fan and long time rider I wanted to get opinions from some of the totally obessed vintage bike fans. All google searches for what I want to know lead back here. Keep riding, keep loving bikes, and hang on to your saddles for the bike revolution that's sure to come with the end of oil. It'll be a pedal-powered planet before too long!
