Hello from Massachusetts

Cycling on road bikes for about 40 years. Presently riding an old Gaburro bike I recently purchased from a decent chap here (Thanks HPL, he also told me to register). I'm partially tearing it down for a rebuild even though it is in perfect working order as it was built, but I need to set up for my size, type of riding, etc.; replacing wheels, freewheel, stem, bar, pedals, post and saddle. Looking forward to learning about this apparently hard to find brand; I'd never heard of it before until I was shopping for another frame/bike.

Bikes: Why list them on a non-cycling website!

Hey Friend! Glad you joined up here. Some good knowledge on vintage bikes; sorry I didn't really have any info on that bike frame. Hope you've been able to ride it before your mods. If I learn anything else about that marque I'll let you know. I still have your email; you are most welcome to contact me here or via email. Only photos I found were of the frame before it got built up; I generally don't take pics except if trying to ID something or for the rare sale of a bike; I deleted the bike pics when I removed the for sale listing. If you send me photos I can post them for you if you want to show it before your changes are made. Also, I have one of those 3t stems you wanted, but it may be too long or short (110mm); forgot what length you thought you wanted. If I get back up there before the snow I might drop over for a ride if you have the bike finished.

Hi Neal, currently dislocated from my NYC apt. I dip in two or three times a week but am dividing my time between Harrison, NJ, and the North Shore of Staten Island for the time being.
Iím actually taking a break now from hauling boxes in SI lol.
Stay safe!
