This is my first post, and I don't know too much about retro road bikes, so go easy, eh?
I walked into a second hand shop yesterday near Bologna, Italy, and this bike caught my eye, as I'm looking for my first new old frame. But I don't know what it is, so any guidance would be appreciated. Something special or Halford's special?
I assume it's Italian, and although it looks like some of the components have been changed, the chainset and rear mech seem original: Campy Nuovo Record.
A few pics --
The top of the fork has a "TV" on it:
The head tube has an "FM" logo:
The top of the seatstays have "special" on them:
The only number I found on this frame is a "53" under the bottom bracket.
I haven't bought it, but it's still sitting there priced at 140 Euros. Worth a punt?
