NOTE: there's a little crack (shown in 2 ) in the upper part of the bottom bracket shell: unfortunately it's a common "desease" on these frames. The crack is repairable but I've chosen to leave it the way I found so new owner can choose what to do with it.
Also, left crankarms is currently stucked. I did not want to ruin crankarm threads, so I've left it mounted.

Other than that, is one of the best preserved Barra bikes you can ever see.
