That's a very cool bike. And I highly doubt they're steel bars, but really that goes without saying, doesn't it?
...On another note: Correct me if I'm wrong here, but I thought the four-hole FD was only available for one year, and it was sometime in the early 80s. Maybe I'm wrong and it was oh, say, 1979.

And for my little boy, who insists on my adding this smiley face:

Yes it does go with out saying, 3ttt alloy.

I was always of the impression that the 4 hole derailleur came out at the same time as the 2nd gen super rear derailleur... which I think was about 1979.

I believe you.

That is the sort of beautiful look most modern bikes cannot even attempt to emulate.

Makes me think of GCN video and how if he had a real race bike like this things might have been different.

I had not seen the Moser Super Prestige decal before, and very cool bike. Would not mind that in the stable!

Thanks, for some reason the only image of the set that loaded in focus was the image of the rear dérailleur.
Note the also only one year aluminum pivot bolts on the rear Super Record mechanism. Actually lighter than the ti bits, much less cost in material and processing....

I liked the era where one could buy at the local bike shop essentially the same bike as the pros used and not felt like you just bought a car.

the brakes aren't backward....in those days, we'd call that the "Italian" way of hooking up the brakes....and it did indeed seem a fair amount of Italian riders did prefer that style.

I have a Moser team bike from this time period (77-78).
It was built by Marnati.
Similar superficial rust issues.
The frame does not appear to be primed, or as heavily primed, as the other Marnati I own. Probably a cost saver although possibly a weight issue as well.
