Hi, Mark,

I do not know very much about Italian bikem but by looking at fork and space behind the seat tube (very little) I would not call this is a touring bike. It will go too fast(quick response due to short wheel base)n and not very confortable to ride.

The friction shift levers in close up did not look like the top of the Campy parts, the band is not even chromed (or gone?), and plastic wing nut?? You have to ask a lot of questions to seller what eactly on it.

Also, one more sign of "cheap finish", the chrome cover over fork crown, to my knowledge, frame builder did not even finish fork but cover it up, or may be chromed for only fork crown?? I can not tell by photos.

Best Regards,

KEN TODA, try to recover from Cirque excitements!
