    It is a Raleigh, but at this time they were shifting manufacturing to other factories in Japan. In this case, probably the Bridgestone factory.

    Dude. That is so cool. The coolest Pinarello I've seen, that's for sure.

    I can't ID the frame, but the engraving on the brake bridge suggests it is a real Basso.

    It is indeed all about money. And money is an abstract concept worth exactly nothing. Funny how that works!

    What would that have to do with either limos or liberals?



    Ah! That makes more sense.

    This is a movie, and it's set 45 years ago. Are you asking about the movie or about reality?

    Depends on condition. I sold a fully overhauled 1989 520 in nice shape last year for $450--new everything down to grease & bearings, etc. This was in NYC.

    However I purchased it for $100, but...

    Well, I wasn't around then so I may be wrong, but my perception is that stuff was much less common than your Schwinns and Raleighs and such.

    It's not a particularly high-end frame. Components could be whatever you like, just make it functional and nice looking. I suspect someone added the Vespa sticker. Piaggio owned Bianchi and Vespa,...

    That's where the seam in the tubing is--you can see it in the photo. I had one fail that way, too. Still, I like them in general.

    When you talk about Japanese bikes, you're mainly talking about the 80's, though, not the 70's.

    I definitely disagree with him on better fit.

    The thing is, these are offhanded comments in his...

    I think he is saying the quality of a frame the average person--not enthusiasts like us--would probably end up with in the 70's was crap, and that the same person would probably end up with something...

    I like the VO retro cage for 60's bikes, and some older ones.

    It's hard without better pictures to pin down the year exactly. You can find some old BSA catalogs here.

    Can we see pics of your current bike? Sounds like it's a pretty good commuter already. Maybe with a little maintenance and a few changes it could be better.
