Current Stage Info:

I changed the rear cog to achieve better climbing capabilities – and I sacrificed the historic authenticity in favour of stiffer wheels with a proper machined sidewall for better brake performance (that meant modern rims... the Open Pro has a very classic look, though). To compensate I listened to friends who suggested replacing the timeless yet not perfectly coeval Brooks Swift Saddle by the Concor Supercorsa.

I'll do my best ;-) While my other italian steel frame (the one I call "Franka") is a low-end product and I felt it wouldn't anger the gods too much to make it a cafe racer, this one has to be as authentic as possible; it is going to consume both time and money to get all those vintage parts I want, so I guess she won't hit the road this season. I'll keep you guys posted, though.

Be patient. It took me quite a while to find parts for my Marinoni restoration. Lots of bike shop hunting & searching on eBay, Craigslist, etc.. I spent more than my original budget but worth it at the end. A sweet vintage ride that always gets comments and questions.

it went quicker than anticipated... some parts are still en-route but I managed to find everything I needed... plenty of NOS/NIB stuff as well...

Wheels are being built as we speak, very soon everything will be ready for assembly :-)
