The course of this day's web wander chanced me to encounter this machine.

Many enthusiasts will be familiar with the numerous contract builds performed by major Italian producers such as Carnielli, Chiorda & Rizzato.

Garlatti executed a number of these as well. Perhaps the best known being the famous Cinelli Riviera.

Cycle is a CL entry so the not-so-great imagery is that of the poster.

Early 1970's date; hub locknuts will yield specific year.

Addendum -

Received a message from member @T-Mar to advise that the International Bicycle Corporation was a Canadian company based in Toronto, Ontario.

Thank you T-Mar! ;)

The chrome lugs though are distinctly Italian in nature through the 60's into the early 70's. If it was assembled in Canada I'd bet the frame is still Italian. The bottom bracket thread would give that away. Nice bike- too bad the chrome is rusted to that degree.

That kind of set-up was often known as a "club racer " in it's day- a kind of meat and potatoes racing machine for the masses in Europe.
