My sweet old school gonna get the paper & coffee bike

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

I have attached a photo of my old school 1980's steel Italian beast with Mt Bars and some back in the day Paul Love Levers for your enjoyment.
I spent my day tweeking the wheels and adding new cable ends 4 cost me $5...wtf???
Any how she is a beauty....twitchy, a size to small actually a 54 but since it is a classic I will suffer.
