I was out on one of my bike scouting missions today.
I ended up in the middle of nowhere (it seemed), , in the rain, waiting at a bus stop.
I’d past a bike shop on the way, so I walked back to get in out of the rain whilst waiting for my next ride.
I walked in and saw this
a circa ’85 Colnago Super in Saronni Red
The Gentleman told me he did the 1985 Tour De France on it.
I walked to the back of the shop, and saw this
the Gentleman said he did a tour on this.
He told me he kept asking Eddy Merckx for a bike, and
Eddy gave him this
Eddy won on it in 1976
I’d never seen this before either
The frameset is a De Rosa
The Gentleman also showed me these
The pictures are poor,
I was in a rush,and punch-drunk at what I’d witnessed, and didn’t want to cause a fuss,
but I’ll compose my self and hopefully the Gentleman will allow me to take some more/better shots.
Forest Gump was right about the chocolates though.
