Amazing track steel bike from the 70's. This on is lugged steel bike made with columbus tubing. It has the original red warrrior head tube badge.

Here is a bit of history on legnano.

A major name in Italian racing bicycles. At least as early as the 30's there were bicycles painted in the famous Legnano light metallic green. The bikes have a rich racing history, and a fun headbadge featuring a warrior/soldier type guy. Probably not the headbadge of choice at the local Bikes not Bombs chapter. Mid 60's top end Legnano Bikes were quite nice. Fun features include Campy Record components, neat Brooks saddles that were embossed "Campagnolo", and the ever clever Legnano seatpost binder arrangement that is on the front inside of the seatlug. Eventually Legnano and Frejus were somehow merged and the bikes became very similar. There are some Legnano models from the early 70's that actually have Frejus type seatclusters! Later top-end models looked more generic - seatclusters became rather plain. There are many examples with the neat paint, fun seatpost binder, and great headbadge, that are made of drainpipe. These examples use basic cheaper parts and are nothing really special.
