This thing has recently had an extensive tune-up including new cables, new brake pads, headset overhaul and wheel overhaul. It rides like a dream!
For it’s age and originality, this bike is in impeccable condition both in function and looks. However, it is not in mint condition. There is wear in the original paint and graphics, and saddle (as seen in photos). There is also some rust on the umbrella pump clip and the toe clips.
Overall, it’s an amazing ride and an excellent example of fine Italian craftsmanship.
