FOR SALE:   Do you know who made this Veloce frame? posted by: chris w on 12/14/2000 at 10:31:55 AM
I've been reading these discussions for a few months and enjoying them a lot. Recently I acquired an excellent quality frame that had been resprayed and rebuilt with early Dura-Ace compunents circa 1980. I'm wondering about the frame itself, which appears to be older and perhaps Italian, with lots of features including very long lugs with triangular cutouts, cutouts in the bottom bracket shell, investment cast fork crown with reinforcing tabs on the inside of the blades, and Campagnolo dropouts. The seatpost is secured by a recessed allen-head bolt threaded directly into the lug, not the usual binder bolt. The brazing is very clean. The only mark on the frame is "Veloce" inset at the top of the seatstays where they wrap into the lug. No serial number that I can see. The fork has a comfortable rake and has double eyelets, plus there are rack eyelets on the seatstays, so it's clearly intended for touring. It gives a comfortable stable ride, and definitely seems worth repainting and rebuilding. I've poked around on the Web, but haven't found anything on Veloce bikes. Any information on this frame would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
