Picked this up today and really don’t know too much about it. I know they had low and high end models. Any idea about this one? I dig the Rino crankset, had a Rino seat post but it was to small diameter. Thanks

Very nice. Never heard of it either, and I agree that crankset is cool. Tubulars?

The best thing about it is that it is too big for me and I don't have to feel bad that someone else has it. Well, actually I do, just not AS bad.

It's a beauty

Looks like a Columbus SL frame, which places it in the middle or near the top of their model lines I suspect they might have a bike with an SLX frame as top model. The components on it, if they are original, places it more towards the mid level model range.
That's a very nice find, specially we do not see this brand very often

This is one classic bike that I would keep exactly as-is (except for a good cleaning). It definitely has some original style.
