Chesini Nobile

This is my first built that has been professionally painted. On the basis of an old Chesini San Premio women frame, I tried to create something beautiful looking for a girl, yet still functional. The aim was neither to come up with a pure racing bike nor with a commuter, rather something inbetween which can be ridden in any given situation, even on a cold and rainy day. As we have quite often in Northern Germany. I was tired of the usual handle bars/Brake lever setup and mounted a "bullhorn" which in fact is a 3ttt standard racing bar mounted upside down and cut off at the bend. This was combined with Guidonnet brake levers, a rather rare choice with teh added advantage that one can acctuate the brakes from different hand positions.

Not sure about the handlebars/levers combo but great bike nonetheless.
