I have been away from the site for a bit due to hospital work. Things are improving on that front, but we are not out the woods yet.

Been out riding with a friend so I was inclined to ride my Raleigh Sports while he rides modified Schwinn I built for him. Helps keep me in check riding a 50 pound bike over his 28 pounder.

Masked up for casual riding that entails stopping for yard sales.

I am awaiting delivery of a Fausto Coppi "GILCO" frameset. Does anyone have any knowledge regarding these bikes; actual builder, year(s) of manufacture, etc.? Painted over without decals; apparently fairly rare as I have only found a couple examples in my searches. I assume it is from mid-late 80s. I have found no references regarding this frame. Essentially similar to the Colnago Master before straight forks were being used. I have never ridden a "GILCO" frame of any nature; as close as I can compare would be a Colnago Nuovo Mexico with the "PROFIL" top and down tube construction. No longer have that bike so I will have no reference to compare it to with regards to the ride feel and handling.
