This bike is a complete restoration.

The Leggerissimo-frame was sold originally through Brügelmann in Frankfurt, Germany from 1971 (or '72) untill 1976. Being friends with the Cinelli family, these lightwight frames were built exclusively for the Brügelmann brothers in the yellow and red special colour scheme. In 1972 Brügelmann equipped the German national team at the olympic games in Munich. This lightweight frame has a drilled G. Fischer bottom bracket from switzerland and Columbus tubing. Thanks to another close friendship between Aldo Luigi Colombo and Cino Cinelli, the tubing was also special and lightweight.

In the '76 Brügelmann catalogue, it says: "Special edition / manufacture in extra light construction - in known Cinelli care - bottom bracket below open - treated Cinelli lugs - Columbus tubing - Campagnolo dropouts. Color: This model is only available in yellow with red."
The catalogue-price for this frame was 665,- DM.

If back then the 'Brügelmann Bros.' intended to shock with these indeed very 70's-like colour schemes, they succeeded. But don't get me wrong here, the yellow itself is exceptionally cool. So even if I personally vote for black ribbons and cables, a silver compressor and -last but not least- for a bottle cage, really did a GREAT JOB.

P.S.: Consider to rename these filenames and make them REALLY unique, as on here e.g. 'IMG_1541.jpg' is also a nice Bianchi, and -who knows- maybe it is also a whole dirty dozen of splendid Colnagos.

No images

I think you need to double check the naming of your images. Make sure there are no spaces and make the filename something unique (ie. not bike1.jpg)
