I think I know this Ernesto guy...he's the same gentleman who misled me years ago in my quest for the elusive Egarim bicycle. Luckily I scored one not long after he tried to trick me...jokes on him! I should have my Egarim up and running any day now!

I haven't looked at the CR for sale site for quite some time and was pleased to see one very interesting posting:

For Sale: *Pisscatelo bicycle, model "Goody" , 83 cm seat c-to-c, 23 cm top, circa 1903 as ridden by Eddy Merckx and the Binda brothers, full Crampagnolo Super Record Delrin including Crampy center pull brakes, NOS, ridden only a few times, perfect as-new condition, moderate patina. Asking $1500.00 firm + shipping. Ernesto C. Fortee, Yorktown, Virginia 757-826-0787 bigring135@aol.com 10/16/2003

Who wants to take responsibility for this?

On a more serious side, the last advert for the Chesini seems to offer quite an interesting proposition. For those that don't know the Chesini brand from Verona, it had a very good reputation in Italy in the 80's and was often favorably compared to Colnago. I don't believe they ever exported much so are comparatively unknown outside of Italy.
