I have become the latest caretaker of a 1958 Raphael Geminiani "Special" frame, and I plan to build it up. The paint and decals are good but the chrome is shot. To refinish or not, big decision, one I won't make in a hurry.
My question is how long were these bikes built and who built them, how many models were there. the frame has Campy drop outs and came with Campy running gear originally. I have seen photos French racing bikes with a mix of Italian and French parts, which seems odd.
Thanks in advance
