20091007 4905...A bike whose first ride included Central Park in New York City
This Legnano Italian-made bike brings back memories of New York City and New Jersey. I bought it in June 1971 while I was in the Army, stationed at Fort Monmouth, New Jersey. It cost me $175 at the Thomas Avenia shop at 131 E 119th Street in Manhattan (geotagged in Yahoo Maps). After picking it up I rode it down to Penn Station via Central Park. Then I took it on the local commuter train back to Fort Monmouth.
That Summer and Fall the Legnano took me all over the part of New Jersey surrounding Fort Monmouth. On one trip I rode to Perth Amboy. I took it home when I went on Christmas leave. It was in storage until mid-1978, when I dusted it off for further riding (in Seattle). Off came the Campagnolo double chainring and on went a TA triple chainring to make cycling up steep hills easier. At that time I added bar-end shifters and, in an effort to reduce my forward lean, reversed the handlebars. The slots in the fenders were cut for using a generator-driven bike lamp.
In 1989 I bought a mountain bike and stored the Legnano in the garage. From then until December 2009 it hung in the garage, taking up space and gathering dust. I was too lazy to sell it and reluctant to do so anyway because I'm a pack rat.
In October 2009 I finally overcame my fetish of holding onto the bike and arranged for a bicycling neighbor to sell it for me. Just before turning the bike over to him I took several pictures of it (including this one) for posterity's sake. He sold the bike in December 2009.

Early 70s Torpado with Italian Made Simplex Derailleurs
During the bike boom, some entry level Italian bikes came into the US with Italian made Simplex Prestige derailleurs! This early 70s Italian made Torpado came equipped with those derailleurs.
I guess that anything was better than Campagnolo Valentino derailleurs!
