Rec'd this today...needs a lot of HB love to make it shine again but still, it's rather tasty. Nice welding, lovely drop-outs, massive co-axially ovalised downtube.

Off to La bella Toscana next week, when I'm back I'll set too with some scotchbrite.

Had a quick play with it between customers...removed the helicopter tape that was over the headtube decal (and elsewhere) with no damage to decal and a general hot soapy wash. It's coming up sweet.

I was based in Greve and travelled out from there on a daily basis. Do you live near. Next year I'm going slightly further South to get to know Brunello.
