Hi thanks for your excellent input - yes Ricci (Bike Chain Ricci) is still going and based between Truro and Redruth. They seem quite fashionable and have a club and some sort of affiliation with the St Piran Race Team I believe. Funny; most would not associate 'glittery' and much less so 'Italian' and 'exotica' with Redruth but you learn something new every day. I think the intention is to try and make a win-win where the owners gets more than they thought they would have given it away for and a passionate buyer gets it at a price they see as great value. I don't want to take the time to split it for him and list, sell, package but I'm happy to help him out a bit. What would you reckon value wise - it's had a tidy up and the mechanic will give it half an hour (gratis) of his time later today to give it a quick once over although it's shifting perfectly well and riding fine?
Wheels are Pelissier hubs (not sure on rims) but the QR Skewers say P1001 which I think is a specific Pelissier hub
Can anyone identify these hubs through the grime -
Chrome or alloy?
They look familiar - I can tell you which ones they definitely aren’t. If chrome, they’re not Resilion. If alloy, they’re not Normandy.
The separate barrels and the big flat sides of the bearing covers is the giveaway on these. Shouldn’t be too hard to whittle them down.
Not sure yet, Recent purchase and seller's pictures and impatient to work out what I've bought,laced to 50s Fiamme rims.
My money's on Bayliss Wiley.!

Thanks very much.
Hey friends, a friend of mine snagged a Koga(?) can anyone ID it please? Is it actually a RoadWinner? Spent a lot of time searching through catalogs, no match for such a color, and it's allegedly aluminium. Afaik all RoadWinners are triple butted CrMo...
