"Chrome is poor" is a very polite way of saying it's terrible with the fork crown very pitted and so unsure if it needs a new fork entirely or a good chroming. Also, I don't see "90%" for the paint, more like about %75-80.

Unsure if these were good bikes and couldn't find a specific listing on here. I really like the chainwheels and other components but not sure if worth the money....

The cycle's OFMEGA Forgiato chainset is swaged.

Other components of comparable calibre.

Not overpriced but on the other hand "why bother?"

Nice bike as presented I would say about half the asking price based on location and condition likely needing full service and new consumables tires, brake pads cables bartape and pedals. So figure on spending $100-150 parts and labor ounce you buy it. At the current asking price I would pass sellers not likely to come down enough for it to be a OK deal.

It's a solid mid-range Italian model but the post boom Legnano do not have the panache and appeal of the earlier models. I've had three pre-boom Legnano bicycles and like the marque but I'd pass on this one.

Thank you all!!

It was way too small for me, but I did like those cranks!!

Wasn't sure on value or if someone was interested and that's more of why I posted it here. Last winter bikes were for there taking in the Niagara and Buffalo area but this year prices around here are generally very high.

Ps Tom

Are you visiting Brantford this year for the winter CVBS on Sunday Feb 24 or waiting for the summer show....? I know it's not that big compared to summer but I'll even buy lunch if you show (or will that cause 6 more weeks winter if you see your shadow????)

As you know, I have yet to attend one of Jamie's shows. I'd like to attend but there always seems to be other priorities. I probably won't be back up to your area until Henley, August 06-11. I'll contact you the week prior to the regatta, so we can make plans to meet again.
