repost from Components.... Iride Bicycles, ever heard of em?funknuggets

Co worker was cleaning out garage and asked if I would take a bike. Figuring it would be a clunker, which I think it may be, I took the dust covered sucker and was giving it a look over and found some interesting pre-index ITM and Gippeme and Weinmann parts. Frame looks to be in good shape, but I know nothing about off brand Italian bikes... it may mean KMart for all I know.

thanks in advancd

there's lots of oddball "branded" imports from the bike boom era. what's the frame like? is it gaspipe, are the lugs real or seamed (check the back of the headtube for a ground down seam), what kind of dropouts-stamped with no der. hanger, etc. etc. either way if it's cool looking make a grocery getter fixie out of it.
