Dave, I had a Galli blue anodized gruppo on a special Nishiki criterium frame I bought at the bike shop I worked at in 1980. The blue anodizing was very dark, almost black, but you could tell the difference in bright sunlight. I have never been able to get info on that beautifully made Nishiki frames. I remember I paid around $300 for just the frameset, and the owner I believe said it was handmade. I really miss it either way. The Galli was great in my eyes, and was different looking than any Nuovo/Super Record stuff.

Hey Gang, Thought I should at least make another attempt to see if there are any old GALLI experts/afficiandos amoungst us here on CR list? Are these components too modern to be considered "classic"? I thought the last discussion of GPM parts was extremely poignant, and was hoping that a similar discussion/education could be addressed. Cheers, David Anderson
