Wow! Some really great ones in there... too bad they're in such rough shape, but for those prices I could maybe budget in repainting... hmmm

That Chesini doesn't look TOO bad, and really neat paint job, give it an oxalic acid bath and some delicate touchups, probably would be looking nice!

I thought I'd been scouring ebay worldwide, but I didn't see any of these, is there a trick for getting Italian ebay results?

Go to Advanced.
Type in Telaio Bici, then choose Italy as the country. I suggest highly that you attempt to communicate using google translate and form a relationship! I did, and they appreciated my attempt and they treated me awesomely.

You can do French and German searches as well. Netherlands, Ireland and England are pretty easy as well.

Huge thanks! There's some really fantastic bikes on the Italian ebay. I'm quite enamoured with this hot pink Moser:

you are very welcome! I have never had a bad experience from Italy, Germany or Poland. A frame out of France was a bit roughly packed but it survived!

i am partial to the Fanini, the Chesini and the Ceccherini myself. Lots to chose from since they tended to be a bit more serious about their rides in the 80s and a bit shorter!

Wow, that is lovely! Rode a Moser that was too big for me once, so I did not buy it, but it was still a nice ride.

How about Serotta Ti?

This just popped up on local CL, perhaps the seller would ship or you can find a facilitator.

Vintage Merckx(57) and Serotta ti(48) - (Breckenridge) [link]

j

Price is right ($400 for frame/fork).

Thankfully (sadly?), nothing is my size.

Wow, that guy has some sweet bikes! Love the Merckx and the Trek, and in my size too...

Man, that ti Serotta is a steal! Unfortunately she has declared the Serotta typeface ugly, so itís a no-go (which... fair. Although far from the ugliest out there in my opinion).

I really thought this one would be the one (itís been up for a while so I suspect he would take less than $900) https://www.ebay.com/itm/49cm-x-51cm....m46890.l49292

But, alas.

Hmm... Sounds like you're better off buying any frame that fits her and getting a custom paint job to her specifications. There are some very talented bicycle frame painters out there.

Oh very nice, I helped a friend build up a true temper trek like that some years ago, I really admired it. I'll pass on this one though, thanks!

It might well come to that, right now I figure I have a few months before the weather turns nice to try to find "the one." I've talked to a local painter who is really talented, but his rates are a bit outside of my budget, unfortunately. I got a quote from a powder coater, however, and the price was quite reasonable, so that's an option.

Thanks for posting, I've always admired that era of Trek. One of the guys at Velo Orange posted a build of a similar looking frame a while back, really handsome bike: https://velo-orange.blogspot.com/202...in-roadie.html

I actually ended up buying another 531 bike, that white and red Mercian that was posted earlier in the thread. It just arrived this week and it really is a beaut, the paint is a very pleasing cream with just a touch of sparkle. I got a pretty good deal on a 9 speed dura ace groupset on the local craigslist, so I'm going to build it up with that, and some Ultegra+Open Pro wheels I have.
