This is a 100% original Rabeneick model "Campagnolo" from 1961. The frame is made from lightweight Libellula tubing, with the trademark firefly logo stamped in all of the tubes. Full Campagnolo Gran Sport group.
I rode this bike with cross tyres on the 2009 l'Eroica.

Absolutely Gorgeous.

That is one amazing bike. I'd say more, but hell, the pictures say it better.

That bike is as old as me!

We both look great for our age ;>)

I'm a hair younger...

Added to A pretty penny cluster.

The clearance should well

The clearance should well work for up to 32mm on bikes of that vintage. I still use the Challenge Grifos on this one, i only removed the small side studs with a razorblade. Brilliant tires!

That must have been a lot of
