[FOR SALE] My Moser Donna Amatori

A late 1970's-early 1980's rare Moser Donna Amatori joined the collection. The previous owner had sold the parts away when I got the frame but I decided to rebuild it full Gipiemme Sprint, as it was on the catalog (Simplex, Ofmega or Gipiemme built). The goal : Make the perfect daily bike for my -always classy- girlfriend. :) The bike's a real toad/race bike. Even if it has this "female" geometry and the moustache handlebars, it is as responsive as my Rossin, Faggin, Liotto or Concorde "male" race frames. The frame is a little big for her (she's more a 54 person than the frame's 56) althoug, with the very short stem and the special handlebars with reverted brake levers, the position is more than confortable. She likes it and I must admit I'm a little jealous.

Nah. I ended up putting it on display in a friend's design shop and it's been there since. To be honest I had kinda forgotten about it. Never tried to sell it again until now. GUESS THAT'S YOUR CHANCE, MAN ! :D

Will be a more versatile single speed built from a 1990's Moser Corsa. She wants to be able to ride it every day. Let's face it: that one was wayyyy to nice for a daily bike. ;)

Good thing Moser and Gipiemme are both italian, then. :p

(Gi Pi Emme, G.P.M. with italian pronounciation, means "Gran Premio della Montagna", Mountain's Grand Prix.)

Anyway, thanks for the like. :p

(But ok, I'll give it to you, LS4000 deraileur group was built by Simplex and only rebadged by Gipiemme.)

Well,I always thought they were French because I always had threading problems like with Pugs.Anyway they're nice different from usual Campy or Shimano.

I assume the brand produced parts with different threadings. But can't confirm it. ;-)

Believe me, it's fun riding it even if you're a man. I can forget it's a girl's bike after two minutes of ride!

Thanks for the compliment, anyway, and good luck for your search of the perfect mate. :p

What camera do you use to take your bike photos? I must know! they all look so fantastic.

My camera is a vintage and crappy 10 y.o. Nikon D70 (even not the "s" model !), so tired the AF motor is partially doing his job, the iso can't be pushed above 200 if you don't want noise the size of a penny, and an electric bug so shitty that the push on the wrong button resets the entire settings without you wanting it.

Lens is a 20 y.o. nikkor 50mm f1.8 with scratched and dirty lenses.

Pics are shot in Raw format and just processed through the regular Raw software of Photoshop CS 4 to reduce their size and slightly correct the expo and color balance.

So if you think my photos are good, I think it's all the photographer's fault. ;)

Thanks.
