At Recycled Cycles in Seattle I spied a fairly cool 54cm Guerciotti, probly about '77 vintage. It has the original 2-bolt Super Record seatpost with extra Guerciotti pantagraphing and colors painted in the grooves, and the original "bumpy" SR rear derailleur. SR c-rings, Guerciotti pantagraphed and colors painted. Barelli pedals, considered by some an upgrade from Campy. Superlight bolt kit of some kind, OMAS, FB, ?? Long brake bolts of course with external nuts, but they're aftermarket Ti/Aluminum bolts and the nuts are Al, as are the c-ring bolts. Avocet Racing III alloy rail saddle. Obviously a weight-weeny enthusiast's bike.

There's a fair bit of rust on the chrome and painted areas, so it'll never be a concours winner, but it's probably a sweet rider for someone who fits that size. Nicely thinned lugs, good workmanship on the frame. The parts are in good condition; the SR rear derailleur in particular hardly looks used. Maybe put a plain NR RD on it to ride, and sell the SR on ebay? $700 is asking price. I have no relationship with said shop, contact them not me.
