Just to let you know: in 9 days time I will be away for nearly 3 weeks.

P.s. I have emailed the maker/ builder in Italy, but no reply yet

I assume that bikes are not on the priority shopping list for christmas, this is the reason why we have many beautiful bikes at reasonable prices for sale. spring will be soon :)

Are the wheels 700C - just need to see if the spare pair I have would fit it first?

Thanks

According to http://www.biciclassiche.com/ " there are even TWO brands of bike MONDIAL, one was based in Milan and the other is still active in Rossano Veneto and boasts of having been founded in 1936. Both brands existing bike MONDIAL are mainly characterized by: the MILANO has two wings on top of a globe, while the ROSSANO VENETO has a prancing horse below a crown."

There's a lovely Berma in 'Cyclopedia' with the same coloured varnish over chrome finish.

At the time they were introduced, the black polycarbonate Universal brake levers were pretty state of the art, now to our eyes they look pretty dreadful!

Am very tempted by this...hmmm 8)

That is a bargain - if it was a 56 I'd have had it!

Free bump and good luck selling :)

Or maybe I would...

Just wandering if it's possible to remove old paint without damaging chrome underneath?
