    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.

    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.

    I just closed the deal on a 1975 Zullo Special frame and fork.
    It's a bit rough and will need some love, paint, and new decals.
    I'm hoping to take it to L'Eroica in a few years for a(nother) milestone birthday.

    I sent this pic to Sr. Zullo and he confirmed the year of origin.

    There are so many great details on this frame. It's going to look amazing when restored.

    So nice!

    I would be tempted to just do decals on this one pictured bove.

    Love the patina for sure. Unfortunately my Sprint pictured above took a pretty hard hit and I bent the frame so I am back in casual search mode for another Zullo.

    Not the red one!!?? ugh. I have been checking that out. That bike is so sweet.
    There are not too many of these up on the interweb.

    The patina on this one is nice, but I have a grey bike already.
    I'm going to paint it and leave the patina on the chrome for character.

    I want to do it like this Pogliaghi...

    Hi Artie,

    Unfortunately it was the red Sprint above.

    Broke my heart.

    That's what I get for riding these things.

    But I am optimistic to find another at some point. There is a racing shop very close to my house that carried Zullos bitd.

    They seem to see them occasionally and they are watching for me. I would love to find another Special.

    They are superb riders. Imho

    The Zullo Special arrived today. Crazy fast shipping time.
    It's in pretty good shape for a 40 year old frame. Lots of chips and scratches. A scuff on the drive side cs.
    The chrome is surprisingly good. The watersides are literally flaking off in my hands.

    Not being very patient, I did a quickie mock-up before I left for work.
    It seems to sit right. I think it's a winner.

    There is an orange one on the bay. A little pricey though.

    I am thinking you might be right on this. Maybe just new decals and a good clean up.
