Okay

rims look chrome, mine are aluminium
brake levers have the bulb on the end, mine were sharp dagger shaped.
my pedals had an outer metal brace, those do not.
also, the front lamp is different and it does look like the grips have been changed.

i do believe it is a Cinzia, just a younger model,erh

this statement sounds like we should send a beret & black turtleneck ... along with a Lord Buckley album

Sorry Gents, best I can do is a brown sailors cap, white turtleneck and a Jimmy Buffet tribute to Lord Buckley, which he got sued for by his kids!

Attsa ironical one!

Lord Buckley certainly had more than his share of "legal issues" in the course of his lifetime...

Even built her a S/A 2-speed hub for it. It worked well, finally got sold this past February at Westminster. Yes, there's a bit of frame flex at the joint, but it certainly works well enough for short distance commuting.

Just another way of looking at vintage bikes.

I left this at my Dads place in Massachusetts when I moved to Chicago a few years ago. I believe he donated it to the local C&V friendly bike shop for refurb and resell. They’ve done some good work for us, and I had left and dad wasn’t interested in the project. It was a cool old bike though, but HEAVY! Like maybe forty odd pounds or so. I’m much happier with my Raleigh Twenty!

This is what mine must have looked like at some point. I only found the Rog decals after removing several layers of various colored house paint. Currently, it is wearing some $5 garage sale BMX wheels, due to the poor condition of the originals. It is flat here, so the single speed isn't a problem.

I sent it to college with my daughter, thinking she could keep it in her dorm room, but it was way too heavy for her to get up the stairs. It makes a compact package for storage, but not for carrying. If I could find a second one, my wife and I would take them in the camper.
