This is how it looks today, 32 years down the road and many thousands of miles later. Purchased new in Calgary, Alberta at the International Cycling Center. One of a shipment of 30 bikes in total with a mix of road and track models. There is little information about the builder Francesco Sabatini but Gino Bartalli knew him. I still enjoy riding it, and like most Italian road bikes of the era it gives a nice smooth responsive ride and looks better, I think, than the majority of modern carbon examples of today.Most items replaced had worn through use and I painted the derailleur and crank set many years ago to add some sparkle. I've lost track of the number of tubular tires replaced and am on the third freewheel which needs to be changed before I can use a new chain. i just replaced the 42T chain ring as well. The last item I bought locally years ago was a Super Record headset - as the original Record on the bike was wearing. I seem to recall it cost around 75.00. I kind of miss going to the local bike shop and picking up a part! In 1985 I had to finally change the rims due to fatigue cracks around the spoke holes ( they were not reinforced ) replacing the original Favorits with a pair of Ambrosio Montreal Oro rims at a cost of 40.00 each . I have actually worn down a fair amount of material on the pedal cage where the cleats contact, but they still are quite serviceable. I should look into changing the grease - the bottom bracket, hubs, pedals and headset have never been opened and they are still smooth - how is that for Campy quality?
