This is my most recent vintage acquisition, its a Benotto Modelo 800.
I have this special agreement with one of the local bike shops that if anyone of their customers do not want their bike, then they call me to take it off their hands.
The paint is like a pearl white, super pretty. But the bike has seen some wear and tear. Check out the lugs on this…
It comes with Corso Brakes and levers, the headset is stamped with Benotto.
Check out the BB, its a heart! Correct me if I’m wrong, but back in the day, they used to make these cut outs so you can see if your BB needed maintenance. They don’t make bikes like that anymore, so when I saw this, I was really excited about it.
The bike it self is small, I’m guessing its a 50cm or something like that. Which means its perfect for Priscilla’s petite self. We’re not quite sure which route this bike will take. I’m playing with the idea of it becoming a SS or fixie convert. Or keeping it as a regular road bike. I do know this, it’s going to need a new wheelset.
