This is a vintage road bike from the late 1980’s. It has beautiful lug work, chrome plated forks and stays, and made from the Columbus SLX Tubing. I am the original owner and it has never been crashed or mishandled. I like many cyclists have many bikes and this one has hardly been ridden. I live in a very dry climate (southwest) and it has been kept indoors. I have it set up as a fixed gear right now but can add gears etc to suit. It has a Campagnolo Chorus brake set, headset, bottom bracket, seat post, Cinelli bar and stem, Flight Saddle. It is 52cm from center to center.
Hallelujah it’s raining…
