A lucky find indeed. I found this frame for next to nothing in a 2nd hand shop (fork and headset included), had it repainted and got all the rest. This is now my lovely leisure bike. Thanks to Maestro Andrea Montalbano for building the wheels and teaching me at the same time.

Update: I have finally fallen while riding this bike. Luckily my wife was close at hand and gave me much needed TLC (very bruised body - fingers are hurting while typing). Steel is great, not a dent to be found.
