Hi listers,

Before I start putting equipment onto this frame, are there any experts on the list who can help me date it please?

Frame has original paint and decals. Wheelbase 40 1/4 inches at shortest position in Campag road ends which have adjusters and fender fittings.

Rear ends 120mm Seat pin 27mm No add-on brazings

Decals as follows: Seat tube: Oval 'Carnielli' (top of tube) 'Campione Del Mondo 1966' (top of 'Bottecchia' panel ) 'Campione Italiano 1964-65-66-67' (bottom of panel) 'Made in Italy' (bottom of tube) Top tube two black and white chequer decals Down tube 'Bottecchia' panel as seat tube with same two 'Campione' parts

Chrome Front and Rear ends (6 inches) Chrome Headlugs and Fork crown

Head badge is rivetted with brass rivets and appears to be made of brass.

There is no tubing identification.

At the moment I'm thinking it could be anytime after 1967, but if someone can give me a latest date that would be very helpful.

Thanks
Mike Waite
