1973/74 Benotto Team Filotex by Giuseppe Pelà

To the list,

I thought some of you would be interested in my recently finished project, namely a 1973/74 Benotto team Filotex bike with frameset built by Giuseppe Pelà in original champagne color with chrome fork. Campagnolo dropouts with 1010A long rear dropouts. Original decals and paint are in excellent condition with top tube populated with a few small dents. Braze-ons for water bottle rear brake cable guides and front/rear derailleurs. Feel free to visit my Flickr site for more pictures and and details under the "show more"
