Dad's old bike that he gave to me. Need some help.

Hey all, I am not really too sure what I got here.

Here is the photo album:

And an interesting picture of the bottom bracket:

So far I have been able to finally figure out what the rims are, but I am pretty clueless as to what the bike is.

Gios Torino, Italian made in the 1908's vintage most likely. The headset and seat post look as though they may be original Campagnolo Super Record. From the design of the seatpost I would suggest it is earlier than 1984, perhaps late 1970's. The group it appears to have on it now looks to be Campagnolo Mirage. Hope this is helpful.

Gotcha anyway to figure out the exact model of the frame?

And I'm just trying to really figure out what all I got here.

GIOS Torino website.

Unfortunately, the lack of decals is going to make identifying it problematic. Contacting Gios with a serial number may be one way to help figure it out.

Yeah I really enjoy the bike. MY only problem is that they are tubular tires, and here in Muncie roads are so awful I was wondering some alternative to the wheels Im using as they are very rare.

Nice bike! A decent set of clinchers shouldn't set you back too much, but if you need to run a Campy 9-speed cassette that might be problematic. But tubular tires are nice and comfortable on rough roads, and don't get pinch flats like clinchers can. So I would probably just ride the tubulars.

Finally, hopefully this is obvious, but the bike looks like it definitely needs a complete overhaul. All the bearings should be regreased and all the cables/housing should be replaced. Remove seatpost while you're at it and give it a fresh coat of grease so it doesn't become stuck.

Well the problem is Id like to go with something that when it pops, and in a college town with broken glass and pot holes everywhere, I think clinchers are the way to go due to their cheap fix. Also could you recommend any sort of lube or grease? Really a video or information on what to do would be helpful.. sorry im nub >.<

Could anyone recommend some decent tubular tires that you think should go on this bike?

For a beginner I would go with the 'pair and spare' tires from Yellow Jersey. They may not be the best tires but at $50 for three its a good deal. I also found the pretty easy to get on.

Perfect this is exactly the sort of deal I was looking for, Ordered a set of 3 plus some new glue!

Are you familiar with gluing on tubulars? It might be wise to seek assistance for your first time. Thye doo need to sit atleast overnight 12-15hrs before being used among other things.

Yeah I've replaced them before. I usually use the following this method:

Put a little air into the tire let it sit a couple hrs. Then put a layer of glue on the tire and let it dry. Then take off the old tire, rub down the rim with alcohol solution. Then apply glue to the new tire and rim and starting at the valve work around the rim stretching until the tire is on.
