Hi. I decided I fancied a 1980/90s Itallion bike a while ago and have been trying to learn a little from the 'net. Mountain bikes aside this will be my most modern bike, so please excuse my noob'ness.
I'd been sent photos of a Moser which I went to see, an came away with the Moser and the Cucchietti. The Cucchietti whispered to me when I saw it
Now as I said I know very very little about these type of bikes and zero about Cucchietti. But little things about the Cucchietti seem very nice to my eyes. The drop outs are Campag, the backs of the Columbus fork blades seem crimped. The seat stays are kind of ovalised, even the chainstay bridge seems special. The Columbus tubing sticker is torn so I can't identify the tubing, although it takes a 27.2 seatpost, the Moser takes a 27.0 seatpost.
I guess what I'm asking, in a niave way, is if the Cucchietti is a better
frame to build up? The Moser is in great condition, but the other frame seems more special
Any comments or opinions appreciated. Many thanks.
