The UPS man dropped off a box today, an Italian relay from Rory Mason (Masini), my new best friend forever. The box contained a 1948/1950 Cambio Corsa equipped Galmozzi. It may be a tad small, but let's face it, there were not many 6'3", 200+ pound bicycle racers in Italy in 1950. Or today.
I am planning a couple of changes. The beautiful red stitched leather wraps will be replaced by faded red fabric wraps with wine cork plugs and the black wall tires will by replaced by gum walls. I have a set of wood Ghisallo rims that may go on it, but only if someday the frame is resprayed black. I have already stashed a set of earlier Galmozzi decals and the correct early Columbus Tubing sticker for it, but don't hold your breath.
