Dad's 1982 Gios Torino Super Record

This is my father's Gios. I love this bike. He's very proud of it too, he went for top of the line everything when he bought the bike in about '84. It had never been built up. He raced on this up to Cat 2 in the 80's until my sister and I were born. Then it spent a lot of time in the garage rafters. It sees some use now, luckily. I got him a pair of Super Record pedals to replace his old ones that were beat up from mad tyte corner scrapin' in the criteriums, the dust caps wouldn't stay on. Night shots show the bike with Mavic GL330s and a different gear cluster. This bike can also be found in the Gios Historic Register (#16). http://www.giostorino.it/le-biciclette-iscritte-a-registro. The illustration is one I made for my dad for Christmas. It turned out nice. Desktop here, be nice and let me know if you want to use it for any other purpose. http://i303.photobucket.com/albums/nn130/volleyballurrrr/GiosIllustrationCard_1920.jpg

I'm looking to your father's Torino SR for inspiration on what to do with my own recent acquisition. Such a beautiful heirloom of a bike.

The tan thing is a toe strap wrapped around the saddle rails and the folded-up tubular. I believe there's some emergency glue in there somewhere too.

Your dad is my generation. I had a Guerciotti in the late 70's with all Campy Record and sewups. Very nice bike your dad's Gios. Must have a lovely ride feel, too.

nice illustration and bicycle. you should change up the stroke & line weights more, especially around the drive-train. would give a greater sense of detail.
