Thanks for the nice comments! Bike is in a stunning condition indeed. I didn't have to do major cleaning work: just cleaning up some dirt and polish the parts and frame again. The bike has been ridden, but not much. All the parts are in excellent condition!

@ Johnsqual: Yes, it's that bike! This one was for auction in a local 2ndhand shop. During one month, people could put an enveloppe with their bid in a closed box. When the month was over, the highest bidder (me :) ) could have the bike. I won over the second bidder with a couple of euros!

As you can see, the headtube is painted in a gray tint. I've contacted Olmo Italy and they confirmed me that this was done by the bikeshop. Also the 'Special' decal is an aftermarket thing. The bike was sold by Hugo Dehaes, a pro cycler who had a shop a couple of kilometres from where I live. His name and phonenumber are mentioned on the chrome chainstainprotector: I'll keep it there!

The wooden prop is still in place: I've added a pic of it in this post. Love the file marks on the inside of the fork!

I've also added a picture of the pantographed brake levers. The bike still has the original gum world logo hoods. And some before/after pics from cleaning the original Olmo straps!

Manouche: I've sent you a pm ;)

The bike is almost finished at the moment. It's completely built up at the moment... The only thing I still have to do is polishing the front wheel/hub. I'll post some pictures tomorrow or the day after tomorrow if I find some time!

As promised, some pictures. As said there's still some minor work to do on the bike: the front rim & hub still have to be cleaned, I need new O-rings for the brake calipers and I have to take a look to the rear brake handle 'cause the cable isn't coming out straight. Will post more (and better) pics when it's completely finished :).

The complete bike, size 60:

Image

I used pearlescent white cable outers. They go nicely with the pearl blue colour of the bike, imho! Also notice the blue valve caps, who match the paintwork. Really like the Cinelli stem too.

Image

Drivetrain. Pedals are SL with original Olmo straps.

Image

I love the chrome on the dropouts. Derailleur is pat. 78. Also notice the chainstay protector: It's a cheap sticker, but the name 'Hugo Dehaes', phone number and adress refer to a bike shop owned by ex Belgian pro cyclist Hugo Dehaes. This bike comes from his shop, that is located only a few miles from where I live.

Image

Just some shots:

Original Silca pump:

Nice ass:

Feel free to comment, especially if you see things I can do better on this bike!

It's perfect in my eyes.
You maybe need some decals for the rims. And you don't need these valve caps. :)

There is an example of the same model for sale here:

http://www.rijwielensmets.be/#!klassiekers/c1ely

However, I think it's been on there for a while so I couldn't say if their price
reflects what people would actually pay.

I mean no valves at all. It is supposed to be a race frame.
A price around 1500 euros would be normal IME.
