Greetings-

Here is a mystery bike that someone removed the badge from while spray painting it at some point in time. This was a thrift store find.

It has thickish chromed lugs and stays, it came with Campy 1010 frame ends, a campy 26.4 post, campy NR rear mech (Pat. 70 mark), 3T "spear" stem, Weinmann centerpulls. The cranks are rather nice unmarked cottered models. I haven't checked the threadings. It feels like a gaspipe frame but I'm baffled by the nicer parts. The remaining parts were a dodgy mix of Japanese and what-have-you rubbish added later on obviously. Note the seat stay attachments also. The file marks are very noticeable, hasty finish work is obvious. I can only guess it's a lower end Italian make? I'd throw it out, but the odd features are interesting. Any help is appreciated.

Darcy Warn,
