Hi, i am new to this forum and i wanted to show the bike i have recently built. It is some nickle plated Italian or Swiss frame, with Columbus tubeset and Tange chromed fork. There are few brands which have some similar identification marks, but i haven't yet id. it. However, i built it as light city machine.

I like it a lot 8)
these nickel plated or chrome plated frames are always elegant

built myself a citybike a bit along the same lines in Vitus 971 and old dura ace EX

but you should use photobucket to show up your nice pics as here they are very slow to download :idea: :facepalm:

Recently it turned out that this is Billato frame! This is my first vintage Italian Columbus frame and it is
incredibly comfort and fast. I don't know if other similar bikes are like this, but I am thrilled with it.. Here are two new pictures taken in room, it is so shiny indoor!
