This is a Torelli Columbus SL-tubed lugged steel road bike, made in Italy, and spec'd with 14 speed Campagnolo gruppo. I'm not sure which group, perhaps Athena. Downtube shifters, freewheel hubset, with a wide-range Suntour freewheel. The fork is chrome-plated and tig welded, but the frame is fully lugged and has an internally routed rear brake cable. Campy seatpost, Cinelli bar and stem, a real Selle San Marco Rolls saddle, save for the Mavic rims and Japanese freewheel this thing is all Italian! The SL tubeset is a lower-level Columbus offering, so while heavier than SLX or TSX of the same period, it still has a sweet, smooth ride quality. This would make a great second bike, commuter, or fixed gear conversion since it has semi-horizontal dropouts. The paint has a few chips, and some of the Torelli decals have partly worn off, but overall it's a very nice bike. Mechanically excellent! The size is 57 cm center to center, with a 55.5 cm top tube.
