Hi all!

This forum has some of the most consistently cool bikes I've seen

My bike isn't WW material but, here it is none-the-less "in progress"

80th anniversary Bottecchia SLX w/ Record 10-speed and some other stuff

sorry I don't know how to post photos yet

Very Nice !

You know back when that bike was being raced it was my fav bike!
I use to drool over them when ever I saw one in Winning magazine.

I loved it & seeing yours reminds me of why. Such a beautiful bike..

Thanks for the memory...beautiful bike you have there... Really kind of cool to see one modernized with ergo shift, new era seat & pedals


PS: here is yours....All you need is the image location ( right click your pic & copy then paste here between the img-code )

At the time when I was drooling 1980's.....I was riding this Masi .....Actually with record pedals/toe clips for a couple years before I switched to Look's :)

Yes, it needs low profile wheels to be a period bike. Then weigh it for us!

Thanks for the replies everyone!

I'm still looking for the right wheels to finish it off.

and if you have to know it's about 20 lbs. as it sits
