NOS road frameset from historic Italian framebuilder Legnano.
This frame is actually NOS from approximately 1979-1980, never having been built up or had any parts mounted.
120mm rear spacing for 5 speed freewheels and shifter cables routed under the bottom bracket shell. External rear brake cable runs along the top tube with three brazed-on guides. This frame takes brakes with long axles (not recessed nuts). Provision for one waterbottle cage.
The tubeset is Reynolds 531, featuring short Campagnolo rear dropouts drilled for portacatena and Campagnolo fork ends. Lugs have large cutouts, filled in white, while the rest of the frame is painted in a metallic burnt orange that leans towards copper. All stickers are original and in great condition. The chrome on the chainstay is actually a silver sticker, but the fork crown is real chrome.
The frame is nicely finished without being excessively flashy, and will build up into a reliable everyday rider!
