Here is an entry from Allen M in Milano. This is his nicely rehabbed Bottecchia. I’m curious on the vintage, as that doesn’t look like a 1960s Campy rear derailer.
Hi, I’m Allen from Milano, Italy. I’d like to submit my late 1960’s Bottecchia touring bike, which I salvaged from a seaside resort. Given the aggressive seaside atmosphere, it was covered in some kind of clear resin which became brown with age, so I stripped, re-painted and salvaged as many components as possible, including the lovely vintage Campagnolo derailleurs. Other parts, including the saddle, chain, front fork, brakes and levers were replaced, hence the “Franken” moniker I chose to customize the bike.
