I once bought a Chessini. It was build with full Euclid and suspension fork by REG. Italy all the way!
Sounds a real beauty, do you still have it?
Yes, you can be sure that was a beauty once ...but when I bought it it was already several years in use by a little girl who went to school with it. It wasn't exactly minty when I picked it up. Good thing is that the price tag reflected that pretty well... 20 euro
Took some hours polishing, but I saved quite a lot parts though! The headset is shiny and performing really well at my Grove, the cranks are awesome (heavy too btw), the cable carriers are absolutely among the coolest I've ever seen (on my Pansonic MC-Comp now). Front mech and wheelset were saved and are in great condition too.
...BUT the fork literally fell in pieces when removed the crown race
The frame was nice and had a lot nice detailling. Needed a repaint though. I gave it away to a collector.
