comment What are the possible upgrades for a 40-year-old Bottecchia 10 Speed?
I'll try and post a picture this weekend. Its a straight steel frame with nice chromed lugs. It originally came with low end campy components but I replaced the crank and derailleurs with inexepensive Suntour and had the wheels rebuilt with Weinmann Concave rims and the brakes are center pull Weinmanns.

I already have a decent road bike and the this frame is straight steel, nothing fancy, so there isn't much reason to spend too much money on it. It does ride pretty nice and has some decent 27" wheels (Campy/Weinmann Concaves). Will it be hard to find a 7 speed cluster and chain that will fit?

I remember having a tough time finding a cotterless crank when I replaced it but that was before the internet or ebay. It's now a Sugino square drive crankset with english or italian threading.
