|I am the original owner and purchased it in June of 1976 for $500 plus
sales tax. The bicycle originally had a Nuovo Record group on it and the
only braze-ons on the frame were the bottom bracket cable guides and down
tube waterbottle bosses. I trained and raced on it for many years.
Conservatively, the frame has 40,000 miles on it.
I had the frame repainted at least two times before its current paint
job done by CyclArt in 1985. I rebuilt the bike in 1986 with a 1980s Super
Record group and I've ridden it less than 25 miles since then. I have some
of the original parts from when it was new but they are all in fairly
rough condition except for the hubs which are still on the bike today.
