Interesting bike.... I know this email thread will be mostly about personal likes and dis-likes...... but the chainring bolts are a bit much as are th e dice. Yes the wheels must go. In the eighties I was guilty of paining c ampy logos and seatpost flutes but I can't say I ve ever seen the brake lev er drillings painted. Could do with that too. The white hoods are strange for me, when where they introduced?

Just overall the price seems a bit high given for me.

My 2 cents,

   And notice the little dice on the ends of the brake cables! As well as the
   cool little Pogliaghi sticker on the fork. I've never seen that before. Al so, note the Campagnolo graphic on the down-tube.

   I can't help wondering if this isn't a repaint. The lug cut-out fill seems
   *way* too good to be factory. I've seen a few of these, of this late vinta ge, in original paint, and I've never seen fill that consistent, or that ti dy. Usually it looks like someone did it at 4pm on a Friday, after an early

If the main paint is original, you wonder if all that paint-detail was original too. It looks professional eno ugh that it might be. Early 80s Pogliaghis had some interesting details lik e this..if this is early 80s, and it appears to be, based on that fastback seat-stay arrangement...If the paint decoration is after-market, someone di d a really good job with it.> > The world stripes on the seatpost and stem,
