I picked up an old repainted bike last night. It had a seat cluster simular to the bike pictured on the back cover of the original "The Complete Book of Bicycling" (it was a blue frame only the rear half shown). The bike I obtained has brazed on cable stops so it has no housing on the top tube. It also has a double slotted BB shell, Campy Dropouts, Short rake fork with a crown profile simular to the Raleigh International with the long middle tougue. Very short lugs sockets hybid head lugs a hybrid of Colnago lugs with extra details (morphing toward Nervex Pro Lugs). I could not resist. It was fitted with non original SR frt and rear derailleurs, record crank, brakes and H/S, Simplex retrofriction levers and jap assorted. 70mm BB fluted chainstays. What could it be? Owner said some had speculated Olmo. And what is the gorgeous Blue bike on The Complete Book of Bicycling? JPEGS WILL eventually come.
