- The Bike – 1984 De Rosa Professional (AKA Super Prestige). Just like the red De Rosa, I am not sure of the exact year but probably close enough.
- The Story – Acquired from eBay in the early days. I asked the seller about the make of some of the specific parts that was not shown in the pictures and his answer was “everything is Campagnolo”. When I got the bike, it was in very poor condition with many non-Campy parts. When I confronted the seller his answer was “all I saw was Campagnolo written everywhere so, how was I to know”. Welcome to the world of eBay! The bike was re-painted in-house in a pearl white with the decals and graphics masked.
- The Cool Factor – These De Rosas are my favorite riding bikes. This one seems to ride just a bit better than the red one.
