I saved an old Oscar Gianni bike from the dumpster this morning.  It has a Columbus steel lugged frame and a weird mix of components with a no-name front derailleur, LX rear derailleur, Modolo brakes but shimano levers, and old mavic rims.  The cabling is shot but the brakes still work and the deraillerus shift.  Frame looks like it is in decent shape with no dents or cracks.  

The odd thing is that the handlebars were mounted backwards so they swept away from the rider so perhaps the previous owner was too big for this frame (possibly a 56cm, i still need to measure).

Great potential and I am thinking about making it a gravel bike with fenders.  I'm thinking about moving the shifters back to the down tube or installing drop bars and placing the shifters at the end of the bars.
