  • The planet x looks a little slimmer than my arionne in the tophos, which i think may solve my issue with the arionne. I suppose at 15 squid you cant really go wrong!

  • A better photo on the bike and the black on black decal.

    rattlecan job?

  • ^ Ouch

  • ^^ Seriously? For god sakes man it's an awesome paint job...

  • Bridgestone = hott! That's right. Worthy of two t's.

  • He he, no rattlecan here!
    Professional paintjob, alltough on that picture you could be misstaken.
    Black metallic.

    Just picked up a front Shamal a few minutes ago.

  • Feck off with your bling front wheels. lol

  • Ha ha, just happend to finish the build and got this at the same time.
    This will most likely go on my Omega.

  • I have these on their way.

    sorry mate from the closeup it looks rattlecanned, but good from far away...apart from the front wheel.

  • Just picked up this cute little Benotto with 24" tubular wheels.
    Not the most beautiful Benotto ever, but as the previous owner of several 3000's, I couldn't resist this one.
    It's going to be either for one of my kids (age 6 and 8), or I'm going to offer it to someone else who has some road race ambitions.

    Heavy steel lugless welded frame, 46cm seat tube c-t and 46cm top tube c-t.
    Looks like early 1980's because of the colour and decals, shifter cable guide below BB-shell (just one for rear, single CR in the front), brazed on shifter boss on down tube, SR crank with marking "80".
    SunTour dropouts (rear GT)
    SR Silstar cranks, 152mm, 46T chain ring,
    5 speed multiple freewheel,
    SunTour Volante rear mech,
    36H Suzue hubs,
    Benotto labeled sprint rims 24",
    Vittoria Junior 24" tubulars (not original),
    alu drop bars 32cm (!) c-c with 14cm drop,
    alu quill stem 6cm with Benotto marking,
    MKS cage pedals with very small Christophe size D (?) toeclips,
    Shmn 105 Dual Pivot brakes with
    SunTour Olé aero levers (both not original).

    Must do:

    • clean and grease up
    • remove rust
    • true and tension wheels/spokes
    • glue saddle cover
    • other brake levers, short reach
    • other brakes (optional, silver looks much better)
    • blue cables
    • bar tape (Benotto blue?)
    • chain and MF (optional)
    • heat set (optional)
    • pedals (optional)
    • new saddle, Concor junior (optional)
    • indexed shifting or SS (optional)
    • rear tubular colour tan/black, glue both tubulars

    Hmmmmm, in the end it will cost more than I want...

  • finished and tested

  • was it about to fall on the picture on the left? looks blurred

  • no, it was taken on mobile phone camera, that could be a reason why

  • Nice dimi3-

    Every time I see these bikes I think I'd like one but they look like such a pain to build nicely.

  • Whoa! whats with the Vigorellis!!! They all look pretty sweet though[t]

    Ho-ra-ti-OOOOO

    Fuck dude that looks NICE! Much better than that piece of shit Joeslain is pushing around... :O

  • Just picked up this cute little Benotto with 24" tubular wheels.

    Thats lovely. Lucky kids.

  • Ha ha, just happend to finish the build and got this at the same time.
    This will most likely go on my Omega.

    yes I am going to put a Dura ace crank on my Breitling.

  • All those Vigorelli make me want to get one.

    The Benotto look wonderful, wish I had this bike when I was a kids.

    Got a frame, an Ernie Clements that's just right for the bike I want to build, 700c but enough clearance for 30c tyres + 45c mudguard, 57ST/56TT, and butted 531;
