Also another question, there is a way to make forks shine back again?



Alu foil & WD40 - squash some alu foil and spray chrome with WD40 than lightly rub any surface rust off. Apply some polish like Pledge on after cleaning

Hi all.

I know this is my first post. And it’s something that probably gets asked a lot on this forum, but what is this bicycle?! I’ve tried to find the information on my own but I’m having difficulty. I can’t even find a serial number.

I know it says De Rosa and I’m guessing it’s late 80’s however I can’t be sure if it’s the real deal. The rear dropout says “patented Campagnolo” and the front “de Rosa Italy”

The seat Stay is wrapped in chrome looking plastic but underneath is real chrome. Also the bars and brake levers are “3ttt mod superleggero racing team” and Shimano.

So my question is, does anyone know if this is original or fake, anyone hazard a guess at the value and would it be worth restoring/ trying to find the correct components?

I payed £700 for it. It’s fun to ride! :D so I’m not too bothered if it’s a duff. I was thinking of putting an 8 speed set with brifters on it to replace the current down tube shifters?

Any information is massively appreciated! Fill me with your knowledge please :lol:

Danny

This R. O. Harrison bike was my late father’s - sadly he never got round to restoring it. Could anyone give me an idea of its value please?

Redo your images on your phone/tablet/PC - double click on image, edit, rotate.
Looks legit De Rosa. Columbus SLX is good stuff. Try to weigh the bike all in, that will soon tell you what is made of.

That stem looks like on one of my bikes - F Moser, can you take a front shot of it, With 3T badge on?
