|Gears||Campagnolo Nuovo Record 10spd|
|Brakes||Universal 61 centre-pull|
|Stem/Bars||Legnano pantographed stem (Cinelli) with Steel Cinelli Giro d' Italia bars|
|Extra details||The Legnano is all original as it came to me, only the bars and wheels were sourced, the rest was all cleaned up and original.
I was told it dates 1967, the rear Nuovo Record derailleur that it came with has no year stamped only the words "Patent", these were introduced in 1967.
The other factor which makes this a little more unique is that it has a very low serial number of 36, (included a picture) last owner didn't know any history but it could have been reserved as a special build.
