    These are custom built bikes, for the most part. As such, they would get painted however the customer wished.

    I believe below is what is generally acknowledged as the closest approximation of production. Based on that, the OP's frame would likely fall in 1977-1978.

    Should you drill flange spoke holes larger?

    My situation. I went to build some wheels and when I tried to insert the 2mm spokes I was using, they would not fit. Sometimes you have to screw them through the threaded part, but not this time. ...

    I think it is a 75. But all the components predate that. RD is 72, the cranks are no date, and the brakes are first gen. Original levers were long reach with the oval.

    While I have ridden this bike for some years, I could never find a proper size French Cinelli stem for it. So I finally decided to take a normal stem and "adjust". Also got a wild hair and decided...
