Plenty to admire there... nice to see a Simplex derailleur working its plasticky magic at the back, and I love the chrome fork crown and large flange hubs. When I see flat town bars, I usually want to slap a pair of drops on right away, but they look great on Super Sprints. That's a really good find.

My friend who volunteers at a place called Action 21 (Charity) had this bought in from the local tip:

just started stripping it bearings are very good, frame number is 5404594

which means it was made on the 54th of april 1959.........4......... :shock:

although that might be inaccurate ........

i`m just going to clean up the frame for now, a bit of touch up paint here and there .....and.......er......i dunno really........

Sounds good, are you getting Brooks bar tape and saddle? :)


Unfortunately the Ottadini sold for only £200 on ebay, my friend and his boss both thought they could've got a little more for it though.
