I got this rather tired looking frameset for postage from kingroon....

viewtopic.php?f=7&t=236159

It arrived yesterday and after an hour or so with aluminium foil, autosol and autoglm this emerged....the blue paint is deep and rich with only a few minor rust spots. The chrome is, amazingly, about 99% intact. The chainstay has lots of tiny slap marks meaning it been used properly and the over painted BB cup indicates that it's been repainted at some stage.

Make?...unknown, serial number?...47, BB?...Italian and seized, paint work?...explosion in a Kona factory, beautiful?...yes, too small?...definitely, what to do with it?...who knows!

Ahhh…I did wonder what happened to that, it's cleaned up well :)

Campag did suit this really very nicely but will no doubt be tricky to track down again, what are your plans for it?

It's cleaned up amazingly well, especially the chrome.

I've no idea what to do with it, I was planning a drop bar build but it's going to be far too small for me. I think it must be a custom built frame because the TT is very short compared to all my other bikes.

I might get it painted and snickered as a retro road bike and stick it on the garage wall, Merckx Moltini, Massi Gran Criterium, Bianchi celeste.....
