Legnano Olimpiade Record Specialissima 53cm Reynolds 531
Here we have a very nice late 1970s Legnano Olimpiade Record Specialissima in fantastic condition. The frame was purchase new and stored for many years before being built up with period components a few years ago. The frame is therefore in excellent condition, with only a few minor paint chips congruous with light use. The build quality is really obvious with nice diamond details in the head lugs and fork crown. All lugs are cleanly filed and beautifully finished and the chrome on the forks and chain stay is excellent. There is however one small pit on the chain stay where the chrome has lifted. All components are in great condition and it has been set up really nicely. The Nuovo Record rear mech copes with the extra gear with ease and makes it a little more usable in hilly areas. The Cinelli handlebars and stem are in super condition with fresh Velox tape applied to the bars. Brakes have correct Campagnolo hoods and pull up well with the correct Campagnolo Nuovo Record calipers in place. Overall it is one fantastic bicycle and it rides so superbly.
