Oh no ...... Thanks David, But you and I should try and keep this one in Canada don't you think ? Nice bike and no reserve, did we mention how much tax and duty and shipping costs (Jerry M. help me here !!!) were involved when you try to take one of these "protected species -National Heritage - Legnano's across the border to the USA" You should know Winnipeg is protected by Dudley and the rest of the Mounties.... (Just a joke guys......)

Hmmm...No major corrosion, dents, I'd say nice bike even though as David mentioned it's probably just a frame you're buying. Does this bike appear to "look" 60cm....to anyone else? Wonder where the measurements were taken, it does look bigger than many Legnano's I've seen though...Dang !!!
