Prima - unheard of brand

Vintage racing bike

If someone can save the pics for posterity...

I have never heard of this brand, and searches have been fruitless. Interesting as it also has a Shimano Titleist for RD, another first for me. 1010 dropouts? Tubulars?

I'm going to try to look at it today.

Do I spy with my little eye a Campag GS three arm crankset? Looks like a decent mid entry level 70s boom bike. Also looks to have a Valentino FD, GS shifters, GS pedals possibly Tipo hubs and I'm wondering what's underneath that gel set cover?

Cool bike! I like the tubulars, chrome dropouts and spiffy paint.

I believe it is a Dutch bike. The seller likely did pay $200 to have the tubulars glued on.

I was going to post this bike, too. Never heard of it, but it sure looks interesting.

Alas, it looks like it's gone. colinm - did you get it?

Hi - Bob nabbed it and was nice enough to PM me here about it. Nice bike, I have asked him to join the thread and post more pics.

Probably prevented a divorce, I'm on a bit of a roll here.

That is a nice-looking machine. If it is indeed Dutch I'd love to know more about it. I'm not familiar with the brand, and I don't recall having seen a Dutch bike with chrome lugs before.
