So my dad bought a 1970 Atala Record Professional when he was a teenager. After a hurricane in 2005 created a leak in the shed it was being stored in, the paint peeled and the frame rusted. Recently my dad mentioned getting rid of the bike entirely, because he had no use for it anymore. That's when my sentimentality kicked in, and I restored the Atala as a fixed gear. Upgraded the Universal center-pull brakes to Campy Super Record side-pulls. Still have all of the original Campy equipment in storage if I want to restore it as a road bike. Big Grin

Level out the saddle n bars, maybe a better saddle (but more worn ratty looking), personally i'd put some wide ass bars on it, other wise a fine beater.
