Hi there, ive recently bought this bike, an old Coicc frame from the 80's I presume??
I bought it off an Italian guy who bought it over with him from Italy a couple of years ago. He had used it as his commuter for 2 years (the flat bars were on it when I bought it!!) He himself bought it off an elderly Italian gent who according to him rarely used it.
Once i had cleaned 2 years of road grime off the frame and components it actually came out quite nice, forks are pretty scratched but there is no serious corrosion. the paint work isnt too bad on the frame either and the gears work perfectly.
Ive taken it out for a couple of rides now and absolutely love it - however i cant help thinking that it should really have some drops put back on it!
All i have done to it is add some spare tyres i had and put some new matching grips on.
The only original parts as far as i can work out are the campag front and rear mechs and the front wheel (campag hub)
My knowledge or road bikes only goes back to about the early 90's and even then its not that great, I jist wondered if anyone out there had any idea how old this bike could be and also what type of steel it is made from. Any info/ comments would be appreciated.
