I've found this wonder in the oldest bike shop in my city.

New frame and fork made in 1971 built with period parts and a much older Brooks Saddle.

Do you like it?

I'm happy that you liked it.

Let's some history.

The frame was made by an artisan of the Milan area that used to work for many little shops.

Priori Franco is a famous bike mechanic that work since Coppi and Bartali Years and that was a racer himself (he reach best resuts in cyclocross tough).

His bikes can wear the Rainbow colours because one member of the Italian cycling Track Team won a World Championship and Olimpic Games with one of his bikes.

Now Priori is 76, he sitll work in the same shop as ever and untill last year he was on the the road as mechanic for Shimano service at Giro d'Italia.

He also ride every day and occasionally race 24Hr MTB competitions.

I'm proud to know him since i was a kid, He's a fantastic person.

Actually it makes a lot of difference than just buyng a mass produced bike just picked in a no matter what shop....

Can you evaluate the value of such a bike in US, I probaly can have a couple more....
