Yeah well, she wants a horse but she's got an Olmo instead.

I like Olmo's better than horses and it's me that'll end up looking after the horse like I do the now large puppy! :roll:


Good choice, the Olmo will be much cheaper to run, doesn't need feeding every day and it's tyres changing every six weeks.

Although, Winston Churchill did say "there is something about the outside of a horse, that is good for the inside of a man".

Wow, very nice find! If you were local I'd be offering to polish those forks, their going to look amazing :) Well saved from the dreaded breakers!

Shame about the down tube scrape, I don't know how they manage it!!

How many are in the collection now?

There are,
2 Eddy Mercks Professional from 1980 SL & 82 Reynolds 531

2 Basso loto 80's & 90's
1 Rossin pantagrafata Super Record 1982

Blimey, when you list them all they add up. :shock:

Sorry, forks polished and super shiny. :D Still scratched though :cry:

Olmo's smell better than horses too.

This is a great bike you have here. The HF is the tops for the OLMO Competion. This one is killer.

Thanks, It's a real beauty and has cleaned up very well.
Just missing the panotgraphed brake levers, but I might have found them already although the price is high.
Olmo's seem to be very popular in the US.

No Bapuss, I haven't entered it for RBOTM. Although now that I have found some new wheels and amber walled tubs I might do soon.
