> This lugged steel frame, according to e-mails from the owner of Torelli
> Imports Bill McGann, is a 1999 Torelli Countach hand-made in Italy by
> Antonio Mondonico. If you are not familiar with this legendary builder, who
> recently retired, look here:
> The frame measures 57cm from the center of the bottom bracket to the center
> of the top tube with a 57cm top tube. This lugged frame is made from light
> but strong cycling-specific Columbus Nivacrom Zona ASB (Asymmetric Double
> Butted) steel tubing made to Torelli's exacting specifications. The frame is
> painted metallic inkwell blue with yellow decals. The 1" threaded fork is
> painted to match the frame and has a sloping fork crown.
> This frame has two sets of water bottle bosses, braze-on front derailleur
> tab, rear brake cable routed at 7 o'clock on the top tube, pump peg, chain
> hanger, and the cable adjusters are brazed on the head tube. The bottom
> bracket is Italian threaded, and a Campagnolo bottom bracket spun in by
> hand. The rear dropouts are horizontal adjustable (adjusting screws
> included) and measure 130mm wide. The 1" head tube measures 150mm and the 1"
> threaded fork steerer measures 192mm.
> This frame and fork were partially built up but never ridden. This Torelli
> is in excellent condition, with only a few shop wear scratches on it. The
> frame and fork have been completely treated inside the tubes with Boeshield
> T-9 rust prevention spray.
> $475 for the frame and fork professionally packed, shipped, and insured to
> the lower 48 US. Several pictures available for the asking.
