Dear Legnano Friends :

I'm coming back to the subjet about the Legnano ( Green ) color, after having second toughs..... and suddenly some horrible flash back memories came, about touching-up some scraches on my very nice ( new and heavy ) Legnano on early 70's. The problem was not to match the original color; in my case , was to find out , in " a hard way " that the kind of finish lacquers ( factory vs. the new one ) were not compatible, and as consecuence the surface did wrikled all over .........it forced to re- paint the all frame...... I would never forget the fustration.....

So, I hope this kind of advice would help some body , with good intentions in mind to restore some vintage Legnano bycicle.........
