CR member,

And now for something a little different for your bicycling collections.

As some of you know, I was a close friend of Pino Moronni, who was best known for his Titanium frames and innovative wheels.

Pino was trained in Rome as a tool maker. He was also a consummate machinist. Over the years he designed and built a limited number of frame

fixtures (jig). As with his other inventions, these jigs were very innovative and simple to use.

Upon Pino's passing, I bought all of his remaining frame equipment. I have 1 brand new, still smeared with Cosmoline, jig that I am offering for sale.

I wrote a blog article about how it is used ( link below; select Category: Bikes; then Pino Moronni jig) and again a similar one is high lighted in the New Tandem Project

Blog article.

I'm pricing it at $2000.00 US. Shipping by UPS/FedEx in the US is ~2-3 hundred depending. I can deliver it to San Diego next month if that helps. It easily fits in the average back seat.

Feel free to call or email with questions.
