Some of the pics suck, I know. I'll update them when I can get the real camera to work or replace it.

This is a 58x57cm frame. The only real issue is some chrome missing off the top of the fork, leaving the copper plate showing in spots. You can't see from the pics too well but the frame is actually a copperish beige, with a pink sort of fade near the lugwork and underneath. Don't know about the color scheme, but it looks cool. The tubing decal on the frame flaked off. This is supposedly an import, based on what I've been told about the clear coated models being what was sold here in the states. This has no clearcoat(hence the flaking of the seat tube decal), All of the other decals look great. There is a Suntour decal on the lower portion of the seat tube. There are no suntour parts on this. Full Campy bike with Suntour decal, I don't know-It looks cool? I am selling this as I wanted a bike with 10 speed setup and don't want to pull this classics pantographed, specific parts off of her. I've ridden her about 250 miles. The rims were just laced up when I got it. Very nice modernized wheels, which were originally tubulars. This originally had Panto'd levers as well, but the original owner took them off for the aero levers. Top tube pad and pedals not included. I got another bike now, so this will eventually be sold. 650 doll hairs not including shipping for whoever wants it.

Just Wondering?

What is the purpose of the puss pad? Sorry "Top Tube Pad"

RE: "Puss Pad"

Well smarty pants, I happen to be a courier and I use a heavy chain lock, so I rode this for work a few weeks in the summer and...well, you seem pretty intelligent. I'll let you think about it.

Yeah, Yeah

I was a messenger for nearly 10 years & never needed a puss pad, but I do remember those things on BMX bikes. So you locked up via the top tube? Through the front wheel & down tube is the safest way to lock up.

Nice Fiorelli Coppi though. Don't ruin it with a aerojunk or anything.

and so on

Since '95 and I have locking skewers on it, not that it's got candy wheels to take. Just only have the chain at the time. Not worried about the wheels just the bike as a whole, and once people see a chain they usually pass on anyhow.

That Fiorelli Coppi will never have clinchers, never have a bandana wrapped around it, or otherwise disgraced.

Yep

So 10 years+, thats cool @ least someone on here with some street cred. It is a nice frame & in one assholes opinion, Italians make the best frames. I'm just a little fed up with the whole fixie scene. If you been "working" since 95 you know what I mean.

Glad to hear the comment on the Coppi.

Agreed.

I had a young punk kid yell out, "F**k your fixie" while I was at work a few months back. I was frustrated with it, but I couldn't blame him. Yeah, I do understand where your coming from just as I knew where he was coming from. I get fed up too. A tidal wave of madness right now, but keep holding your line. There's a few good needles in the Portland haystack out here if you come this way. Keep the rubber down.
