    Thank you devin!

    I'm sure it will be a fast bike, but my aging legs will likely never test the limits!

    Well, it's pretty obvious that his style can be problematic at times, such as the TDF showed us.

    I don't look down like that in even a small group ride, let alone in a peloton of 175 riders!...

    Yeah, I still like the deal.

    The frame is still a quality hand built one, and the re paint along with decals looks professional to.

    What would your plans for her be?

    I don't think the angles on this bike are really that slack. It seems, by looks anyway, to be close to other track bikes of the era.

    Very nice devin!

    We just don't see enough Olmo's here. My guess is they didn't export that many to the US.

    Hmmm, an Italian made SLX frame in nice shape for $229?

    That's tough to find.

    Nice additions IMHO.

    Will look more period correct, and your going to love those Veloflex tires, they are fast, light and deliver a smooth ride. Are they tan walls?
