Saw this Bottecchia come and go the other day..

..within like an hour or so!


I was going to go meet the seller to have a look at it, with the intention to look around and see what else he may or may not have lying around, but someone snagged it and he never got back to me after initally agreeing to meet up :-(

not exactly sure that "braising" was done by a master...

Oh I know right?! So bummed I didn't get to go look around his place tho!

also- since when were those old aero frames completely brazed?? The wings are usually bondo more or less. No way all of that is brass- it would weigh 50lbs! Traditionally- it would be a standard frame and then the bondo-rama would take place before paint. But the "repair" definitely makes it look like its filled with brass. So bizarre...

Yeah man, I was thinking that too. I imagined picking it up and having it feel like an anchor more than anything else. SOOO bizarre!
