hi all,

im certainly no expert on legnano's, have no connection with the seller other than hailing from downunder, but i do think this person would be would be surprised with his auction price if he just swapped a "T" for an "L".

i would be interested in what others think as it does look something like a very nice frame and consistent with that name that starts with an L to my eyes and should warrant better spelling. no wonder an aussie is yet to win the tour de france as they've been riding polnago's, tinelli's and deSosa's. or maybe there is a natural phenomenon which to the eye tips the first letter of italian frames upside down.

i will inform the gentleman if i think his auction is badly received (and i am not the high bidder) :-)
