A very light bike too in very good condition. See pictures.
I bought this bike in Italy from someone who had kept it 30 years in a garage. It has been kept in my flat for the following 6 years with very little use.
The bike is perfectly usable and proved to be a real head turner in London. Would make a lovely classic clubman racer/audax, or even Fixed. This bikes rides beautifully and makes a really lovely vintage sound when freewheeling. Nice Italian classic with over 95% original parts and very little rust all over. Almost rust free underneath.
