Ray: I'm very happy this bike has come into your hands. And I can't wait to see how beautiful it will be once you've restored it. That Colnago and others are using your photos comes as little surprise to me. Your bikes, and their photos are as good as it gets! Your work has been an inspiration to many (me too!)-and many a vintage bike has been saved by others using your example. I'm sure I express their gratitude-congratulations! Your friend and admirer, George George Hollenberg MD Westport, CT, USA PS: With a very valuable bike consider using a freight forwarder who will build a crate-really not an expensive thing. In the US I can recommend an outfit called Craters and Freighters. G
