Just received this rather nice early 70s Olmo
High end components with Gipiemme dropouts
A Very interesting bike
Pictures below show the bike when i received it,untouched.
Started to remove all components,plan is to rub down the frame lightly with very fine wire wool,with the aim of removing surface marks and rust.
Then the search begins to find hopefuly original Olmo Mexico Decals.
Finishing the frame off with 2 coats of 2-pack laquer

Anyone know where i can aquire these
Otherwise i will source some originals from the 70s

Thanks
Malc
