OK so it's a bit too big for me (stumpy legs) so I'm selling it, but it's still a cracking bike:

Somebody say " too big " and " selling " in the same sentence?

Help me identify this seventies bike. It seems to be English, no evidence it ever had a serial number, all Campy, and a unique treatment of the bottom bracket, a heart cut out of the shell and the lug.

The bike I posted was crudely built by comparison, and the hearts on the DeRosa are done better. I noticed that the DeRosa heart cut out of the BB points the other direction.

I had a Colnago for a little over 30 years, and it had clover leafs cut out of the lugs. Finally broke the frame.

My pride and joy is my 1987 Pennine roadbike. Raced hard from approx 1992 - 1998, many victories, many memories. Now retired to turbo training duties as I dont race anymore.

I also have a Raleigh Scorpio from 1993, that is festering in the garage loft at my parents house. It was only ever intended as my hack/training bike, and is kitted out with lights and mudguards! Never washed, never serviced, never missed a beat 8)
(mine isnt this actual bike, as its legrandefromage's)

L'Eroica - now that's something I'd really like to do!

This year's event -

http://www.eroica.it/index_en.php

Might go to the Retro Ronde van Vlaanderen this year - if I can afford the exchange rate!

Nice Bates by the way! A mate of mine used to have one in the 60's. We didn't realise then how rare and desirable they would be 40 years later.
