I believe this is a repro/replica. The original was a true banana seat. Used to have one as a kid. Did my newspaper route on it with the paper boy vest slung over the ape hangers. Those were the days.

Do you think it's really 19 inch? I would've guessed a little bigger. I'm 5'6", and I think 19 inch would be too small for me, but the seller says it fits him, at 5'8"...

Could be 20, but the head tube is short enough...

Never trust the seller's description, grasshopper.

That does look like a 19 inch / 48cm frame, but doesn't look like it is set up for a 5'08" rider to my (admittedly inexpert) eyes.

Maybe contact the seller and ask for a picture with a tape measure on the seattube showing the measurements.

I'll bet that thing is hard to stop once it gets rolling. I wouldn't wear any loose clothing on that bike for certain!

I expect that's one reason it has a clutch, so you can de-couple the flywheel when you need to stop.

Actually... I'm not sure the clutch is functional.

Same, but one size too small or I'd be looking for a facilitator.

I think I agree with you. We'd need to see the other side to see if there's a mech for disengaging the drive sprocket from the freewheel.

Someone will know what this bonded aluminum frame is right away, but I have to hazard a guess. I'm posting more for parts value (tricolor 600 stuff?)

I'm fairly sure this is a Trionfo (Shimano Tricolor) with cheap brifters added.
