I’m visiting my parents. My sister asked me to look over her boys’ bikes. For that I needed my bike stand, which she excavated from the basement. My old racing bike was still in it.

This Colnago Mexico was out being painted when I had my accident. After I got out of the hospital, I finished installing the new gruppo, etc. That was 30 years ago. I never got to ride it in this configuration. I just now dusted it off and wiped it down to look at it. It’s so gorgeous, and I missed it.
