    Last frame shipped was from AL 35223 to somewhere just N of Indianapolis. The USPS Priority "List Price" was around $24, but the online purchase price was $11.80. I like USPS Priority for those...

    I think you're correct (7402 series). But I do see the "curved edge" locknuts, which I thought were only on the 7403 hubs.

    You can change the cogs out, should be standard HG. The spacing is the same for all Shimano 8s systems (4.8mm). In addition, you can even run any Shimano 9s shifter, and it'll index properly with...

    New Belgium Rampant. Good, but not my favorite. Just the best of what was available in the store I ran into yesterday after the ride.

    In my younger days I'd get out the smoker and do up a couple butts and a few slabs of ribs. Sit around and drink beer the whole time tending to the fire. This year, rode today (dodging the rain) and...

    Those are for post CPSC ('78 & later). The early 70's were pointier.

    Not that it really matters, as this is a great deal anyway, but my 1990 Gara is Columbus Cromor.

    Late 80's Guerciotti

    I like it OK, was my trainer bike this winter. Still ride it outside some, but it'll be up for sale when I get around to taking some pics.

    I had an SL framed Bertoni that...

    I see a lot of tape in the big holes (BB, ST, HT) in these pics. I use cardboard paper towel/toilet paper rolls. Just slit 'em lengthwise and slip 'em in.

    My latest one had a non-painted ST panel, so I just used the bike stand and clamped there. Other times I've used coat hangers, usually through the head tube, but I've done the BB, and used the rear...

    Looks a lot like my PXN10, but I picked 1982 to date mine. Not that there's a whole lot of difference in the early 80's models.
    LINK to mine for reference to one that's pretty close to original.

    If it had a higher groupset on it, say Shimano 600, then I'd say it's a fair retail price ($300US) in my area (AL USA). Looks in nice shape, though. The seller might have some wiggle room, too, so...

    Personally, I don't really even like the way they look. For me that settles it. Not for me.

    If you like the appearance, and have the cash, then why not?

    I'd say the factory sent it out that way. The brazing is probably fine, and as long as it tracks straight, you're OK.

    Maybe we can blame it on JohnDThompson ;)

    Dang, I wish I could justify this trip this year. I'd make you head a couple hours out of your way and meet you in TN. Plan on the original Nashville to music city Nashville next year :)

    I don't, but the OPs pics are still an active link.

    Unfortunately, the Belgian paint must not like the southeast US humidity, or had some rust lurking from its past. I've already had to repaint...

    I think your Galli levers are Gran Compe with Modolo hoods.

    Edit: yeah, I guess I should have looked closer and seen DC on the hoods, but I focused on the seeming mis-fit up front.
