And another Holy crap! Very nice, well done!

I saved the old Almarc bar wrap, as it's quite fragile, and substituted some Velobitz instead. (If I re-do it I'll use black thread.) It fits me well and the ride is super-smooth! Great example of Italian craftsmanship and beauty

I used to ride Sprints and Tubs back in the early/middle 1960's. The Milremo HP pump would just snugly fit between the BB and the underside of the top-tube.

Notice the Marcel Berthet Lyotard Platform Peddles in the images - I still have and ride those very same pedals today on my Steve Goff plus I have an additional two pairs.
One pair are on my Bianchi Via Nirone 7 Alu Carbon Flat Bar Hybrid.
Very nice, quite some history there! I always did love the Hetchins with the Vibrant stays. Works of art.

Yup. Always compared my Torpado as an Alpha Romeo. Quick, stylish and not too expensive. Then I got my Tommasini. I think of it as a Ferrari. Fast, expensive and sexy as hell. At least for two wheels.

Cinelli Speciale Corsa, ~1965 frame with ~1960 fork. Columbus tubing, thicker walled version (what would later be called SP). Best riding bike I have ever been on, bar none. It has a snap, a liveliness, that I have never before experienced. Cino Cinelli and Guido Valsassina knew a thing or two. And yes, the chain stays and wheelbase are as long as they look.

Found at a garage sale. Pretty unremarkable but the paint is in good shape. FD is snapped though. It's going on Kijiji shortly...

My 1984 Bianchi Tipo Corsa. I built it back then when I was working in a bike shop. I admit I'm riding my '85 Cannondale more these days, but the Bianchi is still my favorite!

Here's my Boeris that I made a post about the other week:

Boeris was/is apparently only sold in Europe so hardly anyone knows what they are on this side of the pond. This bike was gotten new from Boeris then brought over here by my dad sometime in the 1980's. Boeris supplied the bikes for the Fiat racing team and my dad worked for FiatAgri.
