Giovanni Olmo

 

My first real (read Italian) road bike. Bought from Johnny Johnson's old sponsor Bicycle Parts Pacific.

 

The made mostly road bikes but also dabbled in "commuter" and juvenile bikes. That looks like a combination of both.

 

Cool as hell for sure

I LOVE IT!!!!

 

That thing is RAD!!!

 

I bought my first OLMO road bike f&f from Jim Melton. It was his personal road bike. It had Columbus tubing, Campagnolo dropouts and the coolest custom paint job i have seen to date. Oh ya and a cool azz brass name plate on the head tube.

 

I sold it to a buddy in Nor-Cal back in the mid '80s and he still has it.

Olmo is to Italy what Schwinn is to America, they made every kind of bike for all levels of interest. In the 70's you did see a mess of their road bikes make it out here during the road bike fad.

 

Neat find.
