Frejus Legnano Bicycle by Emilio Bozzi. 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 I think I first rode it in the Spring of’73, maybe’74, so it is probably the same or earlier model year from these. The original NR rear derailleur is marked “Patent-72″. Headtube length between headset cups: 180mm. Top tube length: 590mm. Seat tube: 601mm c. 617mm center to top of top tube lug. Chainstays: 412mm but adjustable. Wheelbase: 1019mm (varies according to rear dropout adjustment). Rear dropout spacing: original 120mm. Currently fitted with 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 hubs laced 3X to Mavic MA40 clincher 700C wheels, Cinelli bars, Cinelli IR hidden binder stem, Campagnolo Bar End Friction Shifters, Brooks Professional leather saddle, Campagnolo Record seatpost, Modolo Pro brakeset, Modolo Drilled Brake Levers, Chorus crankset Originally fitted with: Campagnolo Record crankset with 52/42T Nuovo Record (or Super Record chainrings available), Campagnolo Nuovo Record pedals with steel cages (UNBELIEVABLY smooth, perfect bearings), Fiamme red label sew-up 700C rims, Campagnolo Record high flange hubs (superb condition) laced 4X, 135mm 3T stem, Universal centerpull brakes, Campagnolo Gran Sport front Derailleur, and Campagnolo Nuovo Record rear derailleur. 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 are highly collectible on their own. The bicycle is currently in a storage unit. It is not currently fitted with tubes or tires, but I have some fresh Continentals that could be fitted. 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. 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. Once parts became hard to get and sky-rocketed in price, I mostly rode my other bikes. You can take your pick between original equipment components or high end upgrades. 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. It will also be a way to finalize details and options such as your choices on component group, spares, etc. Key words that may not pertain to item or description.
