Top of the line hybrid for 1995, and the 2nd year of the bonded aluminum/carbon frame:

I’ve changed the stem, handlebars, and seat mostly for comfort/ fit reasons, tires for safety.
Rides so very nice!

Interesting graphics and lack thereof. Did not in 1977, Motobecane go to the side of the tube longitudinal bands then the same color, no outline type?
This bike looks nice but I have not seen this style before.

Forgot about the Bottecchia. It was purchased as a Giro but I upgraded to a Professional by using the parts of the second bike of the same time period.

Lost this one to a car getting in my lane. Still have the frame but the parts that would fit are on the Bott.

Bikes don't stand alone. They are two tired.
