Subject: [CR]bike with gransport

Hello all,

Thanks for all your efforts helping me identify my old bike stuff. The gransport bike has not been identified. I think it's an early 60s Italian similar to Atala, or Doniselli. By the way, while on tour many years ago, I broke a part and the guys at Doniselli "La bici Milano" were very helpful, mile grazie. Anyway the gransport bike has slightly buckled top and downtubes, couldn't identify it so I decided to part it out. The Gran Sport der set is on Ebay, list members get 10% off, just mention CR. The brakes (Weinmann 999 centerpulls) and TTT stem are probably going on my Benotto/Moto Garelli Mosquito project "hotrod racer". The three pin crankset might be Gransport? There are no markings on it, Magistroni bb, and Stronglight headset are going to Ebay. Does anyone need a lower end 27" Italian fork with fender eyelets? or 27" Rigida cromolux rims on Normandy hubs?

>>Chris- I tend to agree with most others in that it looks like an Italian make from the 60s or so. However, the mix of 70s Dia-compe brakes, an 80s Avocet saddle, and that funky placed shifter (brand=???), makes me think that its a "Heinz-57", peiced together from Lord only knows what. Expect major efforts should you want to restore it. Cheers, Dave Anderson
