My baby! Paint scheme is called "Americana".

I found her sitting in a garage in Michigan for 20+ years. After I cleaned all the grime off of it, she was practically brand new. No brake pad wear on the rims at all; no chain wear on the chain rings; even the Campy derailleur off-white jockey pulleys had no wear and came back to their original off white color! A teeny bit of rust pitting here & there, but nothing to get twisted about. Everything on her is original, except tires and bar tape. No road rash, and a bit of "garage rash".

As a teenager I always lusted after the Basso GAP. So much so that I had a cutout photo of one in green-black-yellow fade above my desk. Nice looking ride.

Gorgeous

What a special bike, your a lucky man.

Basso

Thanks! I fell into this, too! Sitting in a garage in Michigan for 20+ years. After I cleaned all the grime off of it, it was practically brand new. No brake pad wear on the rims at all; no chain wear on the chain rings, even the Campy derailleur off-white jockey pulleys had no wear and came back to their original off white color! A teeny bit of rust pitting here & there, but nothing to get twisted about. Everything on it is original, except tires and bar tape. No road rash, and a bit of "garage rash".

Yeah, I'm lucky... ;-)
