Sorry, couldn't resist. And I may not be able to resist buying this either for no other reason than those black lugs against the yellow. Also those cool old fenders and lights. I already have a white PX-10 in the same size . . .
😆. I love the UO8, actually--- I rode a white and black one for a while, and though it weighted a ton, it felt great to ride.... something magical about the occasional pug. I have a PKN10 that I got for like $50 which is still one of my favorite bikes to ride...

Dawes Double Blue on ebay (not mine)

I ordinarily don't post these kinds of things. But here's a listing for 63cm Dawes Double Blue:

https://www.ebay.com/itm/385171192715?hash=item59adfdfb8b:gYgAAOSw0NdiJjXY&amdata=enc%3AAQAHAAAAoLn30BHZVmKe5FbYHO7uRjZhjNF B9UeP5OWDLaPINsX2uZkqNYYRbiTkZmloZ6T1BGFfaJZW96VnKLB36ZZdfGN0gEguwaOGKYi%2FcrgxM7H67HrAnMnOxDI01E2ev CHtsCxRVjr7C8SKk6ZP8CpCnivYniJXUxBZrbKkzgO7UNpUExXOUATMK2az9pUNnfhthhQQDgQvuPmAAjcGJZeufpU%3D%7Ctkp% 3ABk9SR-ShnqOiYQ

It recently sold a much older DB of the same size. I don't want or need another bike, and I'm pretty sure I can resist this one. But if someone else buys it, I won't have to think about it again.

Re-listing - I got new pictures emailed from the seller and he put them in ad. Other new detail in bold in ad copy, ugh! - little Celeste bits peaking from the crevices.

I’m selling my father’s vintage italian bianchi bike frame. I scratched off the original paint, I was restoring it.

Here's a link to a BF post that contains a review of a 1978 Double Blue (from the February, 1978 issue of Bicycling! magazine, written by some guy named Gary Fisher). It looks about like the bike under discussion here, although with a lot less rake to the fork. The one in the review seems to have steeper frame angles, too.

That's one of the smaller 27" frames I've seen lately.

Well, sure it's $12 because they are knock off wheels! Counterfeits are always cheaper than originals.

yes, I'd say so. It might be a later iteration (since seller says bought in '75) that got slightly less "deadly" with the addition of a steel pin inside the cast Alu, but I wouldn't bet my teeth on that!
