I had a 58 cm Volpe in that color... with bad brifters. I think mine was a 1998. It's got semi-horizontal dropouts, so I made it into a fixed gear commuter, with cheap Weinnmann dp 18's, a 110 stem, and bullhorns. It was a great bike but just a little small for me. The replacement was just as close as I could make it to the Volpe - an IRO Rob Roy which is on it's way to becoming vintage itself now. Anyway, Volpes are great. They'll fit some pretty big tires and full fenders well, and handle nicely.

Wow... just realized this is one dinosaur of a thread!
