We really are a throw away society, but I guess if you had to pay to fix this it wouldn't be worth it.
But I'll take it anyway!
Battaglin (Italian) Columbus frame.
Campagnolo Victory Groupset (Gran Sport brakes)
Suntour superbe Pro Pedals
Cinelli Stem & Bars
But the rear hub is broken

Yup, the good old bulk rubbish collection.
The pictures make it look better than it is, the frame is pretty shabby (but seems sound) and the chrome forks are a bit pitted, but I'm still grinning
I was thinking, after seeing the "Enzo" thread, that it would look nice repainted red.

What's broken in the rear hub? Flange, barrel, axle, other?
What make & model? There's a good chance that an identical replacement can be sourced & the bike returned to service.
Carbine & SJH cycles, & Quicksilver BMX
Now that's AUSTRALIAN to the core.
It s a nice looking project...or could be. Got to be happy to get it for free.
SOME PEOPLE ARE LIKE SLINKYS. NOT REALLY GOOD FOR ANYTHING BUT THEY BRING A SMILE TO YOUR FACE WHEN PUSHED DOWN THE STAIRS.
Until next time...
Great pick up, looks like potential for a great unit.
I'll just have to keep looking.
...whatever the road rules, self-preservation is the absolute priority for a cyclist when mixing it with motorised traffic.

Yeah me too. K-mart specials.
Live to ride another day.
Why take unnecessary risks? No matter how small they are...
Nice find - with that groupset it would have to be an '86 / '87 model. It looks like a Victory gruppo to me to. I understand that the Victory cranks had a LH thread in the extractor holes but that shouldn't be a problem with the self extractor bolts yours seem to have.
I actually like the look of the Victory groupset, I also think it was better finished than the triomphe set. I have heard that the Victory components were annodised where the Triomphe components were not annodised. I may be wrong though. I have a bike with a Triomphe gruppo and it looks pretty good. It seems to work well too. The 116mm PCD of the crank rings make them a little odd though.
