Thanks. Prefer to mention, Marc Almond, Courtney Love and David Hockney.

It's a 1991 Italian Basso. Columbus tubing and all that. Apparently they were quite nice in their day. Now looking for decals. And before you mention it, Gil can't help without great expense as hasn't got any on file.

People on fleabay want £30+ for them!

A right mixture of parts but it rides very nicely. Cinelii bars and stem, Galli brake set. Bio pace crank! Odd wheels but 23lbs of Italian bottom pinching loveliness.

All riders and all ridden regularly. Release Roger!

Talking of David Hockney, knocked up this on my ipad in tribute. It's my birthday, indulge me a little.
