I suspect he will deliver as promised. He probably just wants to be rid of it. He indicates he rides too, so I'm surprised he didn't bother cleaning the rust off the chain and rear sprocket. That and his 100% feedback are what leads me to that conclusion.

Fingers still crossed over here. I agree, definitely lots of signs things will go well, but looking at making $30 on this one just shipping it cross-country.

Yup. Sure enough, eBay fail. "Just want to remind u its the frame and fork. But it is damn cool."

That is not at all clear from the auction. Sadly, barely paid much more than $90 that for a full 531 Super Mondia frameset on eBay in way better shape a couple weeks ago ($30 headset, $60+ BB included).

What's going on with the paint? Is it as worn as it looks (all over!), or is it something like a splatter paint job that doesn't come across well in the pictures?

For that price I'd be finding out more about it if I were somewhat local.

I just won this for $95 shipped after watching it for half a dozen cycles, hoping the seller actually follows through on it. Could be an interesting compliment to the Gran Turismo I picked up from @sloar

same model. A.L. Colombo three-tube DB frame.

owned one just like sloar's example I built up as an in-town sleeper because of the stamped ends.

date close to 1972.

Torresini products are nice.

Enjoy!

No clue about the brand or model, but other pics show Cyclone derailleurs, and what I think is a Tange No. 2 tubing decal.
