From the dunp: Allez!
 
My transfer station guy Marcel did it again! Just as found:

Such a deal.
I have one of those, but just the frame set and I had to buy it.
I liked it as it had DiNucci design concepts fully integrated in it.

And I broke my standard of no more silver.
The bike was also produced in Red... Might go that route as the paint has issues.
Will need to create art for most of the graphics.
Yellow on Silver? Way too low in contrast.

Holy cow, what a find. Our transfer stations are like gulags where they zealously guard the bikes.

romperrr 01-13-22 11:28 AM

certainly a great find. Haven't seen an Allez with that seat stay treatment, but I am, by no means, an Allez expert

You're so lucky. Right off the bat there are like four things on there I need for my current project. Congrats!

squirtdad 01-13-22 12:21 PM

Yes Marcel did good nice find

'02 nrs 01-13-22 03:09 PM

WaveyGravey 01-13-22 04:59 PM

nlerner 01-13-22 05:00 PM

Doubtful. I can count one one hand how many people think that bike is worth anything per given town.

I am exaggerating of course, but I am not too far off the mark either.

If so, they've been missing it for a long time, judging by the amount of storage grime I've scrubbed off it.

1993, and box stock with the exception of the saddle and pedals.

The low contrast was likely on purpose. :twitchy:

Maybe if you know what you're looking at, you don't need to be poked in the eye. ;)

There is really small type on the chainstays and the direct drive on the fork... Might be able to read it with a jeweler's loop.

They are hoping we'll be distracted by the lack of contrast. :twitchy:

I have a '93 Pro, amazing it has no dents those are thin very light tubes. Love mine, with a carbon fork replacement it is in my daily rider rotation with 3 customs, 2 Tommasinis and a Vitus 979.

Too funny! Our waste mgt. station is the same, no bikes are allowed to be removed as they go to a local coop to be repaired and refurbished, if possible, for someone who needs but can't afford.

I'm not kidding, one time I saw a whole pile of bikes and wheels in the metal recycle bin, with an all-original Raleigh mountain bike in mint condition lying on top. It was all I could do to not get past the security cordon and liberate those suckers.

And after a solid day's work:

Those lugs are pretty - look very much like the base with which DiNucci started, then added fillet brazed material to. I'd like to see a close-up of those.

All good so long as that is whats happening with ALL bikes they get and no greasy palms in the mix along the way. :twitchy:

Very nice brazing all around. I wonder if they were all done so nicely. I thought 3 times and passed on this model in my size a while back because the seller pics where fuzzy and I already have fast road bikes. Now I wish I thought 4 times and picked it up.

repechage 01-14-22 08:58 PM

yep, that designed in California. If one is standing next to the bike, nada.
