Just picked this one up a couple of months ago and have decided it is too big. It measures 55cm c-c with a 56 top tube standover is 80.75 cm with a 99cm wheelbase. The frame and fork are from the late '70's. The chrome is in good to very good condition with just a little pitting on the chain stay, hardly noticeable. Dropouts and fork crown are chromed.The paint has some scratches, but pretty good overall, no dents or rust . The decals are going, going, but not totally gone. For those that are unfamiliar with Rauler the company was formed by the brothers Raul and Reclus Gozzi about 1975. One of the brothers worked for Colnago before starting Rauler with the help of Ernesto Colnago. They took Raul's name and added the ER from Ernesto's name to come up with Rauler. Rauler did contract work for Colnago and designed and built the first Arabesque. From all the Raulers that I have seen they appear to have very good workmenship as well as paint and chrome. This frame is basically a Colnago Super with spade cutouts instead of clubs. I am asking $300 shipped to anywhere in the lower 48. The frame doesn't include the seat binder bolt or dropout screws. If you would like to see additional photos let me know of what and I will send 'em to ya. Go to the link below and then to the Rauler Blue2 folder to check it out. Please respond off list.
