    If the chain is the original chain, I would switch to a modern 8 speed chain, where the pins are more flush with the plates.

    From the serial number and fork, I'd say that's a '74, which would be a grail bike for me. Very nice find. What date/length are the cranks stamped?

    Hey - don't feel guilty. If you and the other guy weren't there, they may have ended up sold for scrap. Fix them up, love them, and you will have done a good thing. And yes, post some before pics.

    If the Avocet triple arms are 172.5, I'll take 'em. And are the triple bolts spacers for NR/SR original Campy, or Ofmega/Avocet?
    Thanks,

    I snipe manually. Waiting till the last second keeps the price down. Bid early, and the price gets driven up. Pretty simple really.

    You should be able to find a very nice upper-mid range Italian bike for $500, especially if you are patient. Save a Craigslist search, and check in here frequently.
