I just saw this on another site and thought I would share it here. I wonder how many classic bikes were lost in the fire? If you open the link with Google you can easily translate the page.

Bummer. 😟 Even with the flaking paint, lol, I really liked the Bottecchia I had before. I hope they had good insurance, at least.
