Looks great! It's amazing what a simple soap & water bath with a toothbrush can do. Just getting the grime out of all the seams (especially the lugs) can make a frame look brand new, even without wax and polishing.

Nice selection on the cable housing color. Did you wrap over the existing bar tape for extra padding, or double up on new tape? I noticed the remnant of what looks like Cyclolinea finishing tape is still on the bars.

I wrapped over the existing cloth tape for a bit more padding, and did leave a remnant of the original finishing tape showing. A bit of a nod to the previous owner who died early

I have the bike up on the CV sales site at this point. Iím moving bikes along that either wonít see much use or are not the right size for me. This one falls into the latter category.

Iíve had a few people contact me with their thoughts that this is a Galmozzi build. A couple of links were forwarded that talked about Galmozzi built Lazzarettis.
I took a flyer and reached out to the Lazzaretti shop in Rome to see if they might be able to shed some light on this, one way or another. Using an internet English to Italian translation program, I sent a few photos and description.
After a few rounds of translations and photos (and apologies for my total lack of Italian ), they came back and told me that yes, this bike is actually a late 1960ís Galmozzi built frame, badged and sold as a Lazzaretti.
Hearing that made my morning!
