Jeeeez, it always ceases to amaze me what parts people forget to take pictures of. I would have liked to see the fork crown, bb shell, dropouts, chainstays, and other frame details. A few things bother me about the accuracy of the claimed vintage: I believe the stem to be of a later vintage, and that seat stay cap doesn't seem like one from '73. Anybody have a +/- '73 De Rosa to corroborate these details?

In his description he comments, "Also notice the unusual heart-shaped design of the derailleur." That's pretty funny. He's either very naive (nothing wrong with that), or deliberately trying to act naive, so as to avoid responsibility.
