And in with the new

This is our new Bottecchia Squadra built up with a hodgepodge of “Campag” 10s parts and, conspicuously, no downtube shifters. We have jumped that shark and are probably never going back*.

Re: the frame, we were hoping we’d find ourselves here someday.


The frame has lots of neat little flourishes, so more photos hopefully soon.

*Unless one of these days we’re fortunate enough to find ourselves at L’Eroica.

Rare bike

And a grail bike for us, personally. Sadly, this one’s a smidge too big on us. One of these days…

Hope that somebody reading this gets it.

I have a 55cm 1986 Look Equipe road racing bike for sale. It is all original save for the wheels, which are period correct but show some wear on the brake tracks. A very interesting and fairly rare bike, it is made from Reynolds 753 tubing and is 1 of 500 total made.

The parts list is as follows:
Croce D’Aune group, with Syncros II downtube shifters
Monoplanar brakes
Early Chorus hubs laced to Mavic Open 4 CD clincher rims.
Cinelli XA Stem: 135mm length, 26.4 clamp
Cinelli Giro D’Italia bars, 64-42
MKS Sylvan pedals
Selle San Marco Regal Saddle

Frame measures 55 c-c Square, top tube and seat tube. 56 c-t seat tube.

A beautiful bike, showing very little use. It came from a friends collection, and I am just helping him sell it. Please contact with any questions!

If the Buy-It-Now is selected, I will ship for free in the Lower 48, No international shipping.

Neither fish nor fowl

This was a joint venture by Cinelli and Centurion in the mid-’80s. While neither fish nor fowl, it’s probably not a half-bad bike. Looks pretty good, too.
