Picked this up this morning!

Haven't had a chance to properly look at it yet but it has Campag wheels, Shimano Exage group set and no brakes! (it was being used on a turbotrainer)

Watch ths space....

Potential and lot's of it - liking the colour scheme, perhaps a switch to a Campag groupset would do this more justice?

nice find.

Agreed. A Campag groupset is a definite I think as my only other Italian bike has Shimano, which is original, but a 'full' Italian bike would be nice.

Of to the calssifieds thread.......

Great bike, are you going to keep the original colour or restore it?

I'll try to keep the original colour, but it is in slightly worse condition that the pictures suggest, so it depends how successful I am in removing the rust and other marks. If that does not work I might have to go fr a single colour respray, green I think!

Polish the frame, remove rust and re-touch some of the paint and keep the original paint if you like the final results. :)
