It’s hard to believe but when this bike was donated it had a severely beat down blue paint job and some very mediocre parts. Since the frame was nice in a classic way it and structurally fine it was deemed to be a righteous candidate for repainting. The aesthetic inspiration for the color and some of the parts was this famous Eddy Merckx.
The actual color is not quite burnt orange Molteni…
The painted frame was rebuilt with a splendid selection of new and used parts.
This is a comfy cockpit with indexing Suntour 7 speed bar end shifters and Dia Compe Bar non-aero Drillium Levers for period flair.
