Frejus Legnano 60cm Road Bicycle by Emilio Bozzi. (shipping available, please READ the entire description)

• Reynolds 531 double-butted tubing, no dents or bends
• always stored indoors
• always disassembled, cleaned and dried after exposure to water
• perfect alignment
• tube interiors have been treated with a wax corrosion inhibitor
• made in Italy by Emilio Bozzi
• early 70's era (If memory serves me correctly, I think I first rode it in the Autumn of '73, or maybe Spring of '74, so that will narrow down its model year somewhat. The original NR rear derailleur is marked "Patent-72" which denotes the year that particular design was patented, not necessarily manufactured)
• I am the second owner
• shipping available once the potential buyer contacts me to discuss details

measurements (+-1mm):
• headtube length between headset cups: 180mm
• top tube length: 590mm
• seat tube: 601mm c. to c., 617mm center to top of top tube lug
• chainstays: 412mm but the rear dropouts have adjusting screws
• wheelbase: 1019mm (varies according to rear dropout adjustment)
• rear dropout spacing: original 120mm. I am not a subscriber to cold sets.

It has these components on it: Campagnolo Chorus crankset with 53-39T Chorus chainrings, Chorus bottom bracket, Campagnolo Nuovo Record steel headset, Suntour Winner Pro Ultra 6-speed freewheel, Sachs/Campagnolo chain, Dura Ace rear derailleur, Campagnolo Super Record carbon front derailleur, Suntour gray-anodized no-logo hubs laced 3X to Mavic MA40 clincher 700C wheels, Cinelli bars, Cinelli IR hidden binder stem, Campagnolo Bar end shift levers, Modolo Pro Drilled Brake Levers, Modolo Professional brake calipers

For L'Eroica enthusiasts, choose these components:
Campagnolo Record crankset with the original 52/42T Nuovo Record chainrings (or Super Record chainrings available), Campagnolo Nuovo Record pedals with steel cages (UNBELIEVABLY smooth, perfect bearings), Christophe toe clips, Avocet red leather straps, Fiamme red label sew-up 700C rims, Campagnolo Record high flange 36H hubs (superb condition) laced 4-cross, Campagnolo quick-release skewers, 125mm 3T stem, Universal Mod. 61 dual-pivot centerpull brakes, Campagnolo bar end shifters with blue rubberized covers, Campagnolo Gran Sport front derailleur, Campagnolo Nuovo Record rear derailleur (Patent-72), and spiral bare-metal shift cable housing. A Silca frame pump painted in matching color is somewhat faded and not shown in any photos. The Regina 5-speed freewheel originally fitted is not available.

The frame has its original chartreuse paint, decals, and hand-painted Frejus nameplate. Some of the individual components like the Modolo Professional brakeset, seatpost, and original wheelset – all of which are in excellent condition – are highly collectible on their own.

If you are interested in a vintage bicycle such as this, write to me and we can discuss its configuration and the details of a transaction. There is a set of fresh Continentals that could be fitted. Local pick up would of course be easiest. Shipping is not out of the question, but would require conversations to coordinate details.

✩✩✩✩✩ I have all of the original parts with the following exceptions if you are interested in L'Eroica events:
freewheel (stolen), chain (probably missing), plastic bottom bracket dust sleeve (mangled), handlebars (corroded), bar tape (worn)

✩✩✩✩✩ I may have the original crank bolt dust covers, original brake levers, original chainring bolts, original bottle cage and clamps, and original rear derailleur cable housing. Some items like these will either be discovered, or not, when I retrieve the bike, and its parts I don't have in my possession, from storage, at the time when a potential buyer has discussed transaction details with me.
The original Brooks saddle will probably need to be sent to Brooks for refurbishment. 5-speed Regina freewheels are available on ebay and other sources. I have some new, unused, Sachs and Sedis chains that are very close to period correct if not the exact, same product, and there are some Sugino chrome-plated chainring bolts available.

✩✩✩✩✩

I'd like to find an appreciative new owner for this bicycle that I have had a long history with. I first rode it in high school when a classmate bought it new and let me take it for a spin. I loved it. Years later, I saw this man and asked him about it. It turns out he never rode it much and was willing to sell it. I used it routinely for years and eventually added several other bikes to my stable. I mostly rode my other bikes. Now, I'd like to reduce the number of my possessions (5 bikes are getting to be a bit much at my age), so I am offering it for sale. You can take your pick between original equipment components or 80's and 90's era updated components. It is not pristine, but it is free of corrosion and in very good to excellent vintage condition. The bike is really cool looking in real life, but does have some minor cosmetic flaws concomitant with its age and usage. I don't think anyone would be embarrassed to ride it.
