Olmo Gentleman Super, record!

Hi all!

I'm going to pick up this bike this week! So happy with it!
Somebody asked me to put it over here so that you can have a closer look at it!

Very pretty bike. I really like the color. Those hoods look brand spanking new. Any idea of what type of Columbus tubing it is?

Olmo and Legnano, my two favorite Italian bikes and the OP's Gentleman is gorgeous. I would trade any one of my bikes for the OP's Olmo. Wow and welcome to the Bike Forums.

Very nice bike, like the lightblue color. Seen it on tweedehands. Another way to notice that I'm not the only one roaming the Belgian/Dutch sites.

That's beautiful, and in great condition. Something about yellow decals against blue paint. Really sharp looking.

Welcome to Club Olmo.
Maybe not as exclusive as some other Italian establishments, but lots of fun!

Wow, that is a beauty. Somebody put in a lot of time and money to this bike, I'm sure it wasn't cheap! I hope you're actually going to ride it and not just hang it up.

Probably the prettiest Olmo I've seen...generally not my favorite of the Italians, but that's blingy. Chrome looks good - which is unusual given Italian chroming.
