Coppi: the greatest ever Italian cyclist.
Frame built in Italy.

No brainer.

Sachs New Success. Or possibly Mavic. (runs and ducks for cover)

Actually, there's only one way to settle the Campag vs. Shimano dilemma....

Fishing Tackle on an Italian bike? :shock:

It's the difference between a Honda NSX and a Ferrari.

SRAM!! SRAM!!! Burn my eyes!

Anyhow. Think the DA would look well on this, esp if it was ridden with the fishing gear by Polti.

Frame looks utterly mint. Is it NOS?
