    It's broadly a Giro from 1981, but the first owner specced vertical dropouts, which was way ahead of the times back then, so my dream of making it a fixie was scotched. Still, with a Campag Record gruppo, it is the road bike I never knew I needed till I fell in love with it.

    Photos are as it was when I bought it - I've done some fettling since. Need to do a bit more to get it back on the road for summer.

  4. Has it ever been in an Aeroplane hold? I've got a Raleigh Record Ace with the forks bent back like that.

    Think that's just the camera angle !
     
  6. Yeah - it is. The forks are fine, with a lovely slender curve.

    Damn! I look at these pics and wonder why I'm on the internet instead of out on that bike...

    That's a luurverly machine.
    Maybe the next "trend" will be a return to real tubes. Would be no bad thing!
     
  8. I was just looking at the lack of trail and the close clearance behind the front wheel.
