N.O.S. Guerciotti

I found this frame on C.L. while searching for the last parts for my CIÖCC track bike. The ad had only been up for a day and the seller said he already had 35 emails and not to tell him I wanted to make it a fixie. I assured him I didn't need a fixie - that I had a proper Italian track bike and this would be her sister. He liked the story and forgot about the other emails. I said I wouldn't waste his time and would be down the next day with cash, and made all sorts of promises about how I would build it right. I've been trying to live up to those promises ever since, and she's been through 2.5 builds (edit: now 3) trying to get it right. She's a bit fickle though - doesn't like anything except C-record-era Campy, yet went and rejected a set of Delta brakes I bought her for Christmas. Che una principessa!

Had to laugh at the rejection bit, my Romani resto won't take the weinmann pedals I tryed to put on while I rebuilt the Campys. Yep, thats Italian. Both your bikes are awesome.
