Rauler

.
...recently put back on the road after a number of years in the corner of someone's garage. Not a Rauler "Pro", but a Rauler "Special".

That's a beautiful bike. I'm liking those head tube lugs. Someone in my area has been listing a Rauler for a while on craigslist, but I'm not that familiar with them.

...they are swell Italian bikes that often fly under the radar. The brothers who made them did a lot of pantographing and some contract work for Colnago, but sold way fewer bikes here under the Rauler name. I have a Pro, too. Very solid in the way that higher end Italian bikes are solid.
