Gave up trying to get my bike shipped across the country after I moved, didn't really have the budget for a brand new thing, and a local shop had this for $700, I figured working on it would be neat, so I guess I'm Italian now. Not daily rideable until I replace the brake pads (just ordered some Kool Stops), unless my Italian cycling dream involves emulating someone flying off the Poggio into the Mediterranean. One of the brake hoods is torn too. Possibly going to replace the front brake with a dual-pivot, maybe a silver Campy Centaur.

Rolled the Motobecane Grand Jubilé out of the basement and rode it around the block today:



I'll make a half-hearted attempt to refresh the cheap Atom pedals, but might just grab a pair of MKS Sylvan touring pedals.
