what length are the cranks as they look deceptively long?

Hi Ian,
170! I did panic myself when you pointed it out, maybe it's because the phone wasn't parallel to the bike when I took the pic! :)

I've been chatting to a friend in Italy who know Vianelli well, "Vianelli are in Brescia city...i know well dear friend worked for him many years as a mechanic in his shop,he weld himself the steel frame back in those days....(no more today) many Marinoni frames was made by Vianelli (Vianelli e Marinoni was both in italian amateur national cycling team in the 60s)"

very cool. beautiful country. what would be super cool, would be to take the bike to Italy, and ride it around the countryside over there for a spell.

I find it interesting bikenut :)
I really like this Vianelli. They are always very nicely proportioned frames and classy but understated. I was offered one a good few years ago now. A 50cm square, a flat black with gold lettering, really nice but unfortunately at the time I didn't have the money, not that he wanted much. Often think of that frame. This is the first I have seen for a long while.
Very nice, enjoy.
