Welcome !

Not that I would say it is a dreambike, but for your first bike it's nice :wink:
My first racebike was a PEUGEOT that makes noice from everywhere :)

Have fun on your bike, that's most important ! 8)

Lovely classic bike!

That is a sweet ride as i particularly like the colour scheme and how the way you manage to finish the bike off.

Very professional with a very authentic italian touch!

You can win lots of races with that and get your self more cash to buy a new bike!

Ride on!

Yup, that's exactly what I hear when I see it, too. Do you see lots of nice "old" steel like that in Italy? It's becoming more and more rare over here in the US, and actually was never very common.
