Nice! I have the same Bottecchia Giro in silver that I bought brand new in 1972. It was my first "real" bike. Walked into a shop with about 250 bucks and had to have the Giro when I saw it. It's all part but I want to get her back together. I was going to paint it but decided not to but new stickers would look nice. Also need a new spindle for the Nervar cranks, too much riding in the rain when I was much younger.

I usually recommend new 50+ members get a colonoscopy. In this case I still suggest getting the "down tube" scoped.

All that matters is that they stay one step ahead of the rider.
An easy task as they each age.
