Yeah, this bike influenced a LOT of my builds...if you guys keep up on any of my future posts, I will be sharing some shots of my OG Champion that I kinda built in this bikes image.
ANYWAY...Pops scored this offa his best buddy back in the late seventies. His son was a racer, and had like five Cinellis...this one sat in our kitchen, (yeah, Pops raised my bro and I...so, it was rather "manly" around the crib) for years and I lusted after it everyday...all day.
Well, after pestering him for 30 plus years, it's mine....fits perfect.
Dig the layers of dust.
It's home, getting cleaned up, and having the missing Campy parts returned to their rightful places. Thankfully a lot of the goodies are still intact. Just Suntour shifters, cranks and cable guides and that ass 80s gel seat are gonna be replaced. OG paint/chrome!

Let me know if you need any Campy period correct for that beauty. That Stronlight crank is cool, but definitely needs replacement

That, sir, is a QUALITY score. Full Campy for sure. Accept no substitutes.
