Hi,

I'd like to add my original 1974 Legnano Gran Premio, I recently purchased this bike from France and replaced a few parts like the Campy GS brake calipers, rebuilt wheels with the original Fiamme rims, and replaced the Brooks saddle with an original spec 3ttt saddle. I also have the original bill of sale from a French gentleman who purchased this back in Milan in November 1975. Enjoy!

Some interesting info on this model - https://condorino.com/1976-gran-premio/

No apologies for this outrageously disgustingly coloured early 90's mayhem that is Arthur Caygill - Columbus Max

Rescued from the Hipster Hell that is ebay destined for the ignominy of a single speed

I don't think that is disgusting at all, it is an Arthur Caygill after all, a bit of a wolf, albiet in it's 90's purple marbled sheeps clothing.
A worthy entrant if ever there was in RBotM :)
Another great month already, thanks to all.

How about your Connoisseur to add to the colour pallet? ...or has that already won a cigar?
