Rescued from a trip to the dump today - Botty GT !!!

Utterly f****** filthy but very likely well worth the effort to clean it up.

The original wheel set were tubular Fiamme rims mounted on Campagnolo Record hubs but fortunately the bike had a different wheel set installed on it : Fiamme clincher rims mounted on Normandy Luxe Competition hubs.

All 4 wheels were with the bike and three of the 4 tires hold air. Naturally, the one that is flat is the rear tubular.

Now I have several wheel sets of good old tubulars. Will these things ever come back into style ???

Frame stickers are in Italian - Campagnolo & Columbus, and it has Campy drop outs. Dirtiest bike I ever saw. Can you believe that anyone would want to toss this ?

Some people have no good sense. Even if I know nothing about bikes (and I know damn little, in comparison to others here) I'd at least google the brand name and see if it's worth trying to pass to someone else.
