I think this is an Italian bike store brand bike. It was bought on a trip to Italy in the early 80's. It is in fantastic "like new" condition. It does not look like it was ridden more than 100 miles (if that). It's been stored indoors its' whole life. Perfect gum hoods, saddle, bar tape, etc. even the old Specialized tires are in good shape.

Frame is Columbus Tretubi with Campagnolo drop-outs front and rear. Cool "Americano" paint scheme! Definitely a midline build, nice work on the frame but the paint job is sloppy. With that said a good pin-striper could gold line all the stars and do some detail work on the lug windows and get it to look much cleaner. Actually pretty bitchin' just the way it is. Anyway....

Condition of the frame is excellent, only some minor scratches along the right side of the top tube from storage. Parts are all beautiful, no wear no damage, the bike is really a "time capsule" find.
