Greg and Fred,

It is getting qite interesting, solving Mirella bike. So I decided to post what I wrote to Fred earlier.

I bought my Mirella (what seller claimed), is he here in C-R? It maybe 7-8 years ago? KEN TODA

<<Fred,

Several years ago. I bought a complete bike with almost all NR Campy compo's. 

The seller told me it was Mirella (do not remember spelling?).  The head set was G/S, but B/B is Italian, then s/t diameter is 26.4mm, which was typical for Italian.

Cut out Prugnt lugs, chrome plated Campy 1010 long drop outs with eyelet, also told me all R-531 tubing?  Problem was, there was no decal at all, and gold metallic repaint.

I will have photos in next few days (planning to sell in eBay) so you can see more detail. I rode a few years, the ride was very good, I am stealing parts for Cinelli and Legnano.

Strange thing is, there is no mention of Mirella in ITALIA section of C-R Main site.  So, it is not an Italian bike?

Will be in touch,>>

To Greg, Is your B/B Italian spec? And, how about seat pin/post diameter and dropends?

Thank you,

KEN TODA, High Point, NC
