Too large for me, but that is a fine looking ride!!!! I have always been on the lookout for Grandis. Hard to find them in decent condition, which probably speaks to the fact that they are ridden, not hung on a wall.

It's exactly my size which is one of the reasons why I didn't give a valuation of this bike in the valuation forum.

So what size are the tires? Are the brakes short or long reach?

No size on the tires, but they measure 17mm width. Brakes are short reach measuring 40mm from the center of the pivot bolt to the top of the brake shoe slot.

Absolutely awesome bike! I have always had a soft side for the Grandis lugs and pantographing on the Crown and head tube...

More photo's and trying to be as transparent as possible. More photo's of any imperfections in the frame. https://share.icloud.com/photos/0ABn...4u80Q7guDWJAAA

Pretty good shape for 50 year old frame with original paint and decal.

Perfect patina!

When someone talks about liking a bike that has been ridden but well cared for, I think this bike should come to mind. I have been restoring bikes for a few years now and am always a little sad when I decide to repaint a bike. This bike is so right. Not even a hint of rust around the cable guides, the nicks are clearly the result of riding it. I wish I had bike credits with my wife right now because I would buy it! It's my size. A buyer wouldn't need to do anything to it.

In my effort to be completely transparent on the condition of the bike. more photo's of the TT cable guides. Still pretty good for 50 year old Italian beauty.
