Hope this isn't an attaboy but that bike just makes me grin. If it weren' t so pretty, it'd make the ultimate town bike. In Italy one occaisionally see s fine old racers converted to town bikes but they're usually copiously "patinated". I've got a semi-beater old Speciale Corsa and this bike is giving me ideas.
