While a nice bike, a caution that it is not yet period correct. The pedals are later, as are the clips and the cage for the front deraillieur. And those are the items that jumped at me. Someone who is better versed on the Italian racers of the 1951 period might be able to tell for sure. And its still a repaint. But it is nonetheless by appearances a very nice machine and the Paris Robaix mech is much rarer than the more common Cambio Corsa. A worthy addition to most collections I should think.
