Odin sacrificed an eye, trading eyesight for insight, and disguised as Vegtam the Wanderer, traveled the world in quest of the wisdom of the ages. I have the eye sacrifice part covered. I'll get back to you when that wisdom thing kicks in.

This is a fairly early Galmozzi, maybe late 1940s or early 1950s, judging by the hubs and crankset.
There has been a question of whether there were originally decals on this bike. First, it's chrome and transfers always peel. Secondly, so many of the Galmozzis wore other manufacturers livery we wouldn't know what the decals were anyway. We do know it was made by Galmozzi because he engraved his name on the head tube.
A really sweet bicycle.
You all be well, live with joy, and have a great 2014.
