Campagnolo 5sp./Nuovo Record rear derailleur(pat.82), Modolo brake hoods and levers...finally!

This was a Fiorelli in-house handmade creation. The high-polish Columbus fork is sexy and solid. The lugging is smooth and fine. There's 'Campionissimo' panto. everywhere, including a 'C' cutout on the bottom-bracket. Coppi would be pleased. Che bella cosa. Apologies to those who've already friended this bike, and commented. I lost everything trying to update. Update: As of not long ago, my vintage bike connection Jon Bunco(High Park Cycle)found me a pair of NOS Modolo Aeros brakes with hoods. Those dreadful Shimanos are gone...did not agree with the Campagnolo brakes. Picture forthcoming. Thank-you and enjoy the ride.

Nice levers but...

the position of those things are outta this normal thinking world. You don't have polio do you? Check your saddle position too. Not the height, but the level and front to back postion. Your old shots looked like the bike was way better set up. Check out Ray Dobbins bike gallery for proper Italian race set up of the same era. Still love to read your comments and love the bike too. Basically I'm saying, you know, no offense...

Levers and set-up...

No offense taken, and I appreciate the comment about the comments and the bike. The set-up on the old photo was actually that of the previous owner. I stuck with it for far too long, trying to get used to it. The previous owner probably did more organized racing than myself(of which I do none). I race cars around Toronto, so to speak. Toronto is my Criterium. When my local vintage bike/parts connection (Jon Bunco at High Park Cycle)finally found these lovely Modolos, I told him the old set-up wasn't working for me; especially with those god-awful Shimanos. I couldn't feel my hands after ten minutes. We came up with the new set-up, and it has proven a godsend in city riding. I'm on the bike two or three hours straight and it feels great. You should have seen the Campagnolo Super Record Levers w/ White Hoods he offered...but I got the Modolos on a straight trade,so...

What... No bullhorns?


And God said...

to Adam..."You take a damn bite from that stupid apple and what happens...bullhorns on a sweet Italian racing bike. Damn you, your kids, and your kids' kids'. Now get your clothes on, get out of my garden, and if you want bullhorns--Go get fixed(or is that fixted)".And Adamn and Eve left the garden, Adamn got fixted and bullhorns. But Eve was over it. So she left Adamn and went looking for the snake, who rode drops on his fine Italian racing creation. I was, however, considering spokecarding, spraypainting and Aerospoking this creation. Then it's off to the vet's/LBS to have it fixed. After that, have myself committed. Ride on, OSCOOTERS.

Very well said, thank you...

Just... Thanks man.
