Well, here's my Gios, before morphing into the final version.

Transfers to be replaced with correct Brooklyn ones and I have a S1 Super Record rear & front gears, blue rubber gear lever hoods, gum brake hoods, and panto'd seatpin and 52 ring to swap over.
Not bad now, but will be something special very soon.......

Just missing some Cinelli 65 double crest bars. Anyone????????

Very nice :D you need to lose a few inches off the brake cables over the bars for the period effect LOL

Very nice Gios, wish I could own one!

If you're selling in the future, shoot me a PM as I could possibly buy it, seeing as you're only a few miles from me. :D

This one will never be sold.

I will however, in the New Year be selling off some other similar bikes:

Merckx Molteni (De Rosa frame) - Super Record equiped.
Benotto 3000 - Super Record equiped.
Ti Raleigh - original Record equipped.

You Need to Exchange the rivets on the Front Head Bange, due to a paint job in the past the headbadge has been removed. The modern rivets look terrible, especially on an Old Gios!
