I'm new to the list.
I recently purchased a beautiful vintage road bike, but I'm totally uncertain of its era or make.
Here's a link to some pictures of the bike (built up with modern parts) and the original fork (not used because of a switch to 700c wheels):
Here's everything I know about it:
1) Previous owner suspected it was a Cinelli, hence the stickers, but I'm highly doubtful. 2) Originally had 27" wheels. 3)Suntour dropouts. 4) Fork has a slight slope to the crown. 5) On the non-drive side of the bike just below the seat cluster appears to be the serial number stamped into the seattube lengthwise. 6) The lug-style looks similar but not identical to a 60's era Masi Special. 7) It's been repainted (badly). 8) No braze-on's 9) I believe it is Italian, but I'm not certain.
Anyone have any clues or ideas? I've dug round oldroads.com and wooljersey.com a bit, as well as the pictures section of this site, but nothing conclusive.
