Nice! I met the Zullo boys at NAHBS one year.... fine folks indeed.
That's a dream bicycle for me!
What a beauty!
I've owned four Zullos at this point.
Here's a pic or four of my latest project, an early 1980's Zullo Sprint!
Not totally period correct, as that wasn't my goal.

My Zullo. Probably mid '80s.
Not much Zullo love...here is one...
I have more pics of the same bike...let me know if you'd like to see more.
P.s. my first post here, though I have been a member here for a while.
Peter, yes please! I love Zullos.
I'm interested in Zullo. I have been looking at late 80s frames to build up with a delta brake Campagnolo group and was surprised to see how resonably they are priced...
Peter, a very nice bike nand a very nice blog indeed - regarding bike photography as you are experimenting with that on your blog, I think you need a more neutral background and not the door. Because it draws attention from the bike, put bed linen over the door in a colour not psil white. Regarding the angle, try to put the camera on a tripod or similar so that it is level with the highest edge of the tires. The crankarms should horizontal withthe chain on the big ring and the fifth cog, then the rear derailleur looks good.
I have a question regarding the paint of the Zullo, I have seen some frames, that have very nice and flawless paint and then there are some, where the transition beteen the chrome lugs and the paint was not even and very sharp respectively blurred. What is your experience with that?
Again, very nice bike, congratulations.

Thanks for your advice adveneas. Good points. I will incorporate them in future shoots.
Regarding the paintwork...no 9/20 MaxSilenus is as near perfect as I have seen.
Gorgeous bike Peter. Have a Zullo myself, in my case an early 80's one. Even back then the quality of the build was impressive. Cinelli lugs bottom bracket, Campag dropouts etc. Very clean, very little filing etc in evidence. Something I've really seen after I removed the paint(though wonderfully OTT Italian :) the quality was not so great and I recently crashed and scraped it so...).
Yay first post.
