Cucchietti (Olmo) - frame destroyed :(

The march of acquiring mystery frames continues. All details bear out that the frame and fork were produced by Olmo, as the lugs, frame details, fork crown, etc, are all identical to an early 80's Professional - but notably missing the Olmo engravings other than the famous star on the fork tanges. Gian Paolo Cucchietti was a piedmontese ex-pro who started his own company and apparently contracted out the building of the frames to other workshops. Clears 32mm tires!

More Info:
Got doored while out on the maiden voyage, literally not even 10 minutes after finishing the build. Didn't even get a chance to take a picture. Fork is bent and potentially not saveable. The frameset with a local builder now to see if the fork is salvageable or if there's other damage to the frame. Might get resurrected with a repaired or new fork.
