I've always been a keen cyclist, and recently I have found myself on a work placement with a design company in Milan.
To cut a (kinda) long story short, I ended up heading to my local flea market to find a nice cheap bike to provide me with transport around the city during the time of my stay...
...I know technically speaking this isn't strictly a road bike, but its almost there, just the bars that let it down!
I apologise for its general grubbiness, but it seems it hasn't had a good clean in years!
From what I can work out, I believe Cassia to be from the 70's (please correct me if I'm wrong!). As I can't seem to find anything out about the Cassia brand, I took a guess by the components mounted, and believe it was probably made in a backstreet somewhere in Italy!
It seems now I don't want to leave her here in Milan, so it'll be coming to England with me... where a good cleaning and possible cheapy resto!
Anyway, here's some photos... oh, and she cost me 30 euros
Thanks for looking!
