Confente #65 built in 1977. Exceptionally detailed paint job with all lugs and brazeons outlined in gold. I'm not totally sold on the seat and bar tape yet. I am going to replace the wheels with some more correct ones as soon as I can. The bike had a very "eclectic" build when I bought it and many of the components were not really period correct or were pretty thrashed.

Wow, now that is a true
