Here's a NOS Atala Grand Sport. It was rescued from one of those abandoned storage units. I got it from the rescuer after he looked it up and realized it was a fine riding, collectable Italian road bike. So, it wasn't cheap, but it is unusual for a couple of reasons. It had the original tires on it, which I replaced. All the decals are intact and the paint is a brilliant canary yellow. How often do you get a chance to test ride a 40 year old Atala that's practically new?
Drop by the Bike Preserve and try it out. I think you'll agree that they don't make 'em like they used to.
A few more photos here.
