Pull to flush!

LOL Maybe some of you will get a kick out of this, maybe not. When I saw the flushing mechanism on this toilet I couldn't resist. Here is my retrofit - it actually works way better than the original. Laugh away....

That's awesome, but I wouldn't be surprised if the ghost of Tullio pays you a visit!

Oh, I thought you were storing your Campagnolo parts in the toilet. It just turned out to be the Campagnolo Cambio Toiletta.

Scandalous! Quick mods, get rid of those pics! If the Italians see that, you'll get locked up and dragged through their draconian court system. You could do life for that man!!!

If I catch too much heat for it I'll just switch to Suntour, it'll probably work better anyhow!

Probably the funniest thing I've seen this month! Belly laughs and WELL PLAYED!

If it were Suntour it would have been out of business and "operation" decades ago

I want a toilet with apehanger bars, highway pegs, flames on the crapper bowl and a jockey flush.

Hell yeah! I was wondering how to upgrade the seat... I'm not sure I'll notice the weight difference, but it LOOKS fast.

True, if you're going to have a "quick release," you'd be in the right place...

I think anyone here would much rather have a CampI toilet than a shimano one any day of the week. I think i will wait for the 75th Anniversary model to come out before I hop on.
