Italian was never on my radar for cool old bikes... Then I got my Bianchi....now I think this bike looks HOT!

Did I get some disease from the Bianchi that makes me dig Italian bikes?

Superb frame! I really like the square (Columbus?) tubing on these bikes, awesome. BITD I looked at Colnago and Pinarello,but found their geometry always too conservative compared to what was available from West Coast Americas... Short top tubes, long chainstays.

If only the disease came with one of those frames as a cure/antidote.

I really like Italian frames. Still gradually collecting parts to build up my Scapin.

Did you buy that Colnago? If so did it come from Texas?

No I didn't pick it up... although gorgeous it's over my budget. I'm in the process of de-uglying my Bianchi, so no more bikes for the near future.... although I've heard myself say that before :facepalm:

Original CL ad is here: http://philadelphia.craigslist.org/bik/3606534554.html
