The bike is in great shape for a vintage ride of its type. The frame is Columbus Cromor with Cinelli lugs and dropouts. There are the expected paint chips on the bicycle, none have been touched up. The largest paint chips are on the left seat stay and, naturally, the chain stays. The frame appears to be at least partially "chromed under the paint" nickle plated in these area so there is no rust. The drive side chainstay is properly chromed with slight rust and pitting in some areas. The front and rear dropouts are chromed on the top and sides. This chrome is not pitted and has no rust. There is a slight dent on right side seat stay near brake bridge that is visible only in certain lighting. The seatstay is completely straight. There is a long two inch scratch on the front of the left fork leg. The decals on the frame are intact and are in good shape except for the decal on the left side chainstay that is heavily damaged. For the future owner of such a fine vintage bicycle: the paint never had a clear coat and will benefit from careful waxing and polishing to keep it looking great for years to come. The rear hub is for 7-speed Shimano cassette only.
