every now & then a beauty comes along ....Spirito

a fellow NYC rider saw this Gios on ebay and as it was a "buy it now" he took a little risk as the pics were none too clear. he thought to buy it for the parts and perhaps could sell the frame on if it wasn't too good.

boy, did he score well. one of the nicest ive seen and in close to flawless condition all round. the standard spirito saddle makes it truly perfect and in fact i like the white far more than the standard blue which gios is known for.

Roger de V. would proud.

to view all the pics click this link and change the last number (ie instead of ....Gios1.jpg - change it to ....Gios2.jpg - ....Gios3.jpg etc etc all the way to 14)

the owner Lorenzo is suitably smitten and will be keeping it as is (he has a nice batavus with super recordto sell now if anyone is interested)

Looks like the seller didn't know it's worth. Why a 3-day auction?
