the first bike I've seen on here for months that has mudguards!


I have a number of bikes with mudguards and have entered a few in the RBotM in the past and it doesn't seem that they attract much attention. The one that I am most proud of is this one-of-a-kind Soncini Sport bike from 1947. I have already opened another discussion where more photos can be seen here

Hopefully it won't bother the purists that is does have indexed shifting (original from 1947), quadruple pivot brakes (also original to the bike in 1947) and custom vertical drop-outs (also original to the bike).

Cool stuff already! (though I agree that the second Merlin--while AWESOME--is a bit too much of an outlier build-wise for the comp. the first one, though, hits all the buttons--what a beaut)

I like the wide spread of bikes we get each month, but I think it would be fun to have a more narrowly themed month every now and again (for 'cross bikes or track bikes?), given the possible entries around.

Are you sure this is a Galmozzi? There is very little that is reminiscent of the many other Galmozzi bikes that I have seen. Angelo Galmozzi himself has stated that there were many "fake" Galmozzi branded bikes, perhaps this is one. I take that the paint was redone given the unusual layout of the down tube decals and the missing address decal. The headbadge also seems somewhat out of place on this frame.

Ma sei proprio sicuro che si tratta di una bici Galmozzi? Nelle foto da lontano che si vedono qua, non c'è niente che farebbe pensare ad una bici Galmozzi. Forse sarebbe opportuno aprire un thread specifico a questa bici dove puoi postare altre foto più dettagliate (infatti secondo le regole del RBotM, non si devono inserire più di 2 foto, onde invogliare la gente ad aprire un thread dedicato). Per quel che ne so io, Galmozzi faceva telai con congiunzioni sella tagliate dritte e non a forma di sella a cavallo negli anni 60. Poi alla fine degli anni 60 avevano per lo più gli occhielli per i parafanghi.
