Good post from Ted, the following gallery has a few snaps of my Olmo Deluxe, c.1961-1962. Full campy, "no record" hubs, ferruled fiamme rims, but surprisingly has one of the old ttt seatposts with the red composite "absorsion discs" Since ttt and Ambrosio are synonymous, maybe it was spec'ed to match the Ambrosio bars/stem? Couple of semi-helpful detail fotos, this one ain't no "gaspipe"


Anyone up for respraying "chromovelato"?

I am beginning to think people are buying the old stuff for show rather than go, I DO wish mine was as presentable as the eBay $$$ Olmo being discussed.
