its a nz built tarini firenza. from my research the frame is from mid 80’s - medium level road bike.
tarini were smallish bike builders. all their frames were made in asian then imported but i am
pretty confident mine was hand built by mark mclean. the seat post tube has a sticker
“high tensile steel, designed and constructed by mark mclean”
there are some patches of rust on it but i am short of funds so i can’t really afford the
powdercoat or paint job, yet.
i brought the bike off ebay for $94 and stripped it back. original ebay purchase here. the excess equipment off it is currently
being used to build my other “bad weather” fixie. a peugeot U08 in very average condition.
