De Rosa on line http://www.derosanews.com

Name Model: Neo Primato

Description: A genuine myth for this frame time does not exist. The fascination radiating from the perfect finish, the poetry of steel tubes with joints filed by hand one by one and its bold but still pleasant "old-fashioned" line, today also in the classic colours "Faema" and "KAS" grey, are priceless values, marking the history of De Rosa bicycles around the world.

Weight (no fork/no head set): 1.800 gr.

Picture of Neo Primato: <http://www.derosanews.com/derosa/modules/DeRosa/images/colors/ cyc-1163751966-74-66915.jpg>

The web site shows twenty different models (even a city bike)... quite a difference from the 1970s when they offered two models: Strada and Pista!
