    Thanks. I stole it from an old friend. He suffered more than I did, believe it or not.

    Bianchi Limited, Shimano 600 Tricolor group

    DSCN8465.JPG

    Peugeot PRN10, Reynolds 531 tubing, 70's

    DSCN8361.JPG

    Mondia Special, Reynolds 531 frame, forks and stays, rebuild with Shimano 600 Arabesque.
    This is an older acquisition, rebuilt after almost one year and it is a keeper.
    Maybe sometimes I will rebuild it it a Campagnolo Nuovo Record group which I got it after I sold the Rossin frame and fork.

    I've got this 87 Schwinn Prelude in ice pink. This thing is crazy fast! I got on it after not having been on a road bike in years. Ridiculous
