I have an irrational passion for Olmos but this should look good to more than most. I'm trying to amass some 9 speed Dura Ace, some wheels with shiny spokes, flite saddle and Grammo stem.

Is that a new (like in made today) frame? Are they still in business?

Been going since 1938 and still doing stuff on www.olmo.it
This one is about 10 years old although never built.

Awsome - love the colour and the stars on the paint job.

Those lugs are outrageously minimal - and check out the gussetting on the BB shell :D

Love the way the seat stays blend into the seat clamp lug.

Beautiful frame and that BB shell/lugs really stand out.
Love to see it once built.
Enjoy
Jamie

Scary start. I had to get the drill out to fit the seatpin bolt. Now I can get it seatpin clamped in the workstand to tackle the bottom bracket.
