Thanks for posting the video CrowSeph . Very nice job on the paint and I'm glad you kept the original components.

I like that you reused components?
Rustines introduced a brake hood not long ago for Universal levers. I put them on a early 70s Bottecchia.

Is that a Huret Svelto rear der? If yes, how does it perform?

Thanks for "keepin 'em on th road".


Not cheap - at least when I purchased. But improve hand comfort a lot.

rear mech Campag Valentino, matches front mech and shift levers

brake levers Balilla, Rustines hoods "probably" an OK fit

---

dull appearance of head fittings likely not due to corrosion

they may be zinc plated rather than chrome; an economy option from OFMEGA

---

original saddle pillar appears to have been replaced during restoration. were any markings found on it? have not before seen one similar.

Very nice job!

Thank you for sharing it with the forum.

Always good to enjoy another Cesare.

How is the ride quality? (I suspect good, because I have a "thing" for Italian steel. ) I do like the orange-with-silver color scheme a lot.

Thanks a lot. To be honest the paint scheme was chosen by my girlfriend since the bike has been restored for her.

I tried to keep almost everything , but some components were in a bad shape as the saddle etc, sadly the front derailleur and the campy's lever clamp are broken but when is possible i'll fit some new parts.
Interesting to see those brake hoods , i must cheeck the price.
Derailleur is campy Valentino extra (juvela you always right!) and it perform very well , i have the same on my condorino and it works pretty good.

Nice job. I'm sure there was a lot of time, effort, sweat, and love put into the transformation. I wondered, while watching the video, if you were going to leave it as a five speed? Did you leave the front derailleur there to act as a chain guide, aka, to help the chain stay on without switching out any of the previous parts? My curiosity stems from me currently planning on a single chain ring setup on one of my bicycles, and not really having a lot of funds available to do the job, whether I would need to do the same thing.

Avery restoration i try to do my best , but sometimes the money is an effort-limiter....
actually the front derailleur is mounted for aestetics since complete the bike (and since because i'am planning to fix it).

Using a front derailleur as chain guide is a great solution , i have it on my commuter bike. Is cheap but a bit ugly.
Here my folding bike with a front derailleur as a chainguide

Grazie mille per la replica Don Peppino!

My question was not about la sella but about la reggisella.

In case it is of interest began a discussion thread here on the bicycle's model of shift lever:

? for the Tulliana experts

Opsy my fault , il reggisella is branded "ruggieri" and is quite unique (this ---> link )
sadly i had to replace since the saddle height was a bit excessive for my girfriend , instead i used a normal one with the same diameter but i gain 3+ centimeters of less saddle height... Not the best solution but had to be done.
Thank very much for the link , sadly i had to replace those levers too since the clamp broken at the part "A" and also the part marked as "B" were hardly bended and damaged since they used a bigger cable so the lever was not working and the force bent it.



Ps. i really must show you my other bike ready for eroica (hoping to make this year). Is the first vintage bike i own with all parts vintage... (except for innertubes and tyre).
When i'll open the tread i'll send you the link asap
have a lovely day

Much appreciate information on cannotto reggisella; nuovo per mio.

Hope your girlfriend is getting along well with Don Rizzato Cesare.
