I wish I could post my Italians but I've still not built them up. Quite shameful of me.

Bikes: '84 Pinarello Record Equipe rebuilt with Campy Chorus/ Record; 2009 Pinarello Paris/ Campy SR 11sp

My 2 Pinarellos. I'm the original owner of the '84 Record, which I rebuilt with mostly Record 10sp parts about 2 years ago. Headset is the original Campy SR, and the seatpost is the original NR. I still have the Concor saddle in the basement. The only non- Italian parts are the bars and stem and the pedals. The frame was brought back from the factory for me by Kolin and Delarosa who ran Northwest Cycles in Seattle back in the old days.

The white Paris is certainly out of place in C&V, but is also all Italian except for the bars (Easton EC90 SLX3) and the Look Keo carbon Ti pedals. Drivetain, brakes, etc are SR 11 speed.

My wife has a Bianchi Giro, but it has a DA/ Ultegra drivetrain (and I don't have any pictures of it).

My Atala

Forgive the reflector, was riding my girlfriend's front wheel while waiting for new tires. I'll probably do a post about the rebirth of this old ( originally yellow ) Atala, but for now, this pic from Ocean Beach will have to do. 1973 Giro D'Italia, with all new 9 sp Campy. My first road bike of any kind.

My favourite ride, an '87 De Rosa Professional



Fast and light, a Modolo 3000, top of the line at the time



Purple Designer '84 Ciocc



A Ciocc from '87 or so that I powdercoated and put a 105/Ultegra kit on, my second favourite ride (really bad photo, sorry)



A Battaglin from '87 that is a great all-around bike made from Columbus Cromor tubes



A Colnago Oval Master titanium bike that is incredible to ride but too awesome for me, I'll probably sell it in 2011



A mid-'90s Colnago Master Olympic that I bought for parts but I am not really crazy about how the Shamals feel so I will probably sell it

Within the last year, I've sold my Masi, Colnago, Cinelli, and De Rosa, so the herd has been considerably culled. But as many folks here know, Italian bikes are my favorites. Still have the Marastoni (plus an autographed photo of Licinio Marastoni with my bike), Bianchi with panto Chorus group, circa '76 cromovelato Wilier with panto parts, Picchio Special frame awaiting build, early 70's Coppi, and a BMZ I recently picked up. Here's the BMZ awaiting spring:

Nice.

What frame material is the BMZ built from?

A close-up of the stays at some point would be cool.

Love the paint.

Incredible collection! It puts most here to shame including myself (goes without saying). What are your gripes with the Ti Colnago, and the Shamals?

My recent acquisition, Colnago Active Made in Italy:





I know it has Shimano Ultegra Group on the Colnago, that will be changed to Campagnolo Chorus soon.

Gios Torino Professional all Campy and 99.9% European. I just installed Campagnolo Record C, that I had from a Paramount PDG I picked up a few months ago.





Here's my Sunday rider on a dry and clear day, Cinelli Super Corsa. Campagnolo Carbon Record with Mavic Ksyrium Wheels and Cinelli Titanium Grammo stem.
