    OMG, I used to have a bike like that, my first “good” bike, when I was 15 or so! An Italian-made frame, that, though “only” Columbus tubing in the three main tubes. Originally equipped with a three-spoke Campy crank. They ride well…great find!

    Nice. Whatcha goin to do with that old “museum
    piece” Valentino? I could see that it gets properly recycled for you……….

  • julie s

    Old parts have already been traded off for other vintage parts for my Grand Prix build. Everything gets recycled in a way/donated or traded. If I had space, I’d probably keep everything!

    Nice work, Julie!
    All that shiney chrome makes me want to squint and reach for my shades!

    Very nice! I too had this bike back in the 70’s. Actually had two of these as the first one was stolen. Just curious, how much did they weigh? Thanks for the memories!
